B-52 battle-damage pics

Hi all:

I'm putting together a new slide presentation called "On a wing and a prayer", basically (as the title implies) about shot-up or crippled aircraft which made it home, 1939-date.

I've heard several accounts of USAF B-52s taking hits from SA-7s over Hannoi during the Linebacker campaign in Dec 1972 and returning to base, but have never seen any pictures, despite a fairly good web search.

I did find a pic of a "BUFF" which came home with most of the fin missing, but this was a 1964 incident and had nothing to do with Vietnam.

Any hints from your readers would be very much appreciated.
