How Many Apples Can Be Carried By A Boeing B-52 Stratofortress? (Part 3 Of The Carrying Capacity Saga)

Of Course, Starting off with the CARRIER!

The B-52H with a weapons payload of more than 32,000 kg is capable of carrying the most diverse range of weapons of any combat aircraft. The nuclear weapons capacity includes 12 AGM-129 advanced cruise missiles (ACMS), 20 AGM-86A air-launched cruise missiles (ALCM), and eight bombs.

Now, for the apple!

AND THE VALUES OF THE APPLE!

Through some "basic math" equations, and knowing that when harvested, apples are usually roundish, 510 cm (24 inches), and weigh 0.16 kg on average. We are able to calculate that, with the added weight of the Duct Tape, Glue, And Wiring as the adhesives, we can come to a total of right around 4,440,924.524 . Give or take 200,000 apples for storage diameters For reference, in the seeds of an apple, resides a trace amount of cyanide... This many apples have enough cyanide to kill thousands of people. Perfect for when Federal Agents ask you what the heck you are doing!

YAY!

Also, we can add an ADDITIONAL, 30,000 - 40,000 or so, given wingspan, with the availability of space from Glue, Tape, And Wires that are around the rest of the plane, holding other apples.
