There are only two bases still flying these birds, and the only way the AF can get away with that is because half the squadrons are deployed at any given time. The one pictured was stationed at Dyess AFB, TX.

Beautiful picture, ugly plane -- I'm far more partial to the Swedes designs, and the Russians.... mm MiG and Sukhoi. Poetry in heavily armed flight.

amazing plane, lots of presence. I've never seen one fly in person, but I remember seeing it as a kid for the first time on static display at the March AFB airshow and marveling at how much bigger it was than I expected, and I remember wishing I had been at the show at Edwards AFB when they rolled it during a demonstration XD

Ha! You know people over here have been moaning that a Bone hasn't attended RIAT for the last two years. The fact that this is your first since 1995 really does put that into perspective. Shows you how much we have been spoiled over the years in the UK. It isn't even our aircraft and we expect to see it. :)

lol yeah it'd been a long time for me xD

the only ones I had seen had been static display only. and that was just the one I saw at Fairchild AFB's show back in 2010. To see one actually show up was a victory enough, the fact it flew, well it made my day xD

Well you caught her wonderfully! So victory all round I think. You know even having seen it over the years as many times as I have, it would still make my day to see it just like you. They really are amazing machines. I still remember seeing a B-1 doing a full display routine at one of my early airshows, and seeing it almost pull completely inverted with wings swept back trying it's hardest to damage my eardrums. Awesome stuff, I'm glad you got to see it again at long last!

yeah they are! actually I remember the last B-1 I saw, back when the Museum of Flight used to do their airshow at Boeing Field, it actually caused a bit of an incident. Upon takeoff a bunch of people had been standing behind the fence right behind it. Welp, they wound up across the street when the B-1 powered up (and this is a four lane road)
