More B-1s..

Post by alhenderson » Fri Nov 29, 2019 12:56 pm

Having read someone else's post a few threads down, thought I'd share some B-1 photos as well. Have always loved these, they just look right. Weird to think that they are going to be outlived by the B-52s - these seemed like the future when they first entered service.

Earliest picture I have of a Bone, "Boss Hawg" of the 96th BW taxying into the static park at the Leuchars BoB day, September 1991.

Close up of the nose art of 85-0080 "Screamin' Demon" at Boscombe Down in June 92

Onto 1994, and the Reluctant Dragon from Dyess' 7th BW appeared at Mildenhall..

.. whilst 86-0132 was at Fairford later in the year

Mildenhall 96 had 86-0126:

Had to wait until Fairford 96 to get a shot of an Ellsworth machine, 85-0084:

28th BW were back at Fairford the following year showing off their tiger credentials:

Whilst over in the static display the same year was a Kansas ANG example (from memory don't think the ANG operated these for long?)

Then again, here's 85-0080 from the same unit at Avalon in Australia in 2001 so I guess they got a good few years out of them.

Fast forward a bit to 2006, and a Dyess machine on the north side flightline waiting for its slot in the flying display:

Love those burners!

And even more recently, a B-1 sunrise over Gloucestershire

Guess I'd better get back to work.. :(

Some great memory joggers and good pictures to boot. However, the last shot is one of the best shots of them parked up I have seen.
