    Fail Safe was based on a book written in 1962.

    A B-52 was still pretty advanced in 1962 and ICBMs were  in their infancy.

    The first really modern ICBMs like the Titan II and Minuteman were just becoming operational at that time.

    If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's reeeally sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low... oh you oughta see it sometime. It's a sight. A big plane like a '52... varrrooom! Its jet exhaust... frying chickens in the barnyard!
