    I live right outside Tinker AFB and they occasionally fly in. Several times right over my house. Photos cannot do it justice…it is a very large plane! And just too damn sexy!

  4. The best looking bomber since the B-58 Hustler. The B-1B Lancer.

    It's a nice plane when gets airborne. Problem is getting it airborne. Usually have backups to 1 flight

    I hear about it. The original order was cut way back because of problems and the supposed superiority of the B2, so there aren't many of them.

  7. +Jordan Henderson There aren't many B-2 Spirits, either. And the -52 keeps marching on.

    When I worked at ellsworth afb. They needed 2 spare aircraft to get 1 to fly. Not sure how it is now but it is impressive once it's airborne

    +James Wong Yeah, there are problems with the Lancer and I understand it's hard to fly.

    I've brought this up before and never got a good answer. Does anybody else remember back in the 70s when they were saying that the B-52s would be falling from the sky soon due to metal fatigue and there was nothing we could do about it? This was used as justification for building the B1 and B2.

    Now, I think modernizing the bomber fleet is a good thing, but do they have to misrepresent the situation to make this happen?

  11. I don't know but the last time I heard the Stratoforts were supposed to stay in service till something like 2040. That's an awful long lifespan for something that was supposed to fall out of the sky in the '70's.

    Just one of many excellent fighting jets we have

    +Timothy Baskett I've heard that there have been improvements in metal inspection and remediation, but I also think they were trying hard to sell new planes.

    +Jordan Henderson indeed, the B52 probably has 35-50 years service remaining.

    Saw this puppy in action at the Australian International Airshow right here in (or near) Melbourne a couple of years ago. Amazing beast.

    +James Anderson it's not a fighter, its a bomber.

  22. James Anderson 5 Aug 2015 Reply

    +Shadow Rider I didn't say fighter, I know the difference, I said fighting jet , please go back and check.

  23. Shadow Rider 6 Aug 2015 Reply

    +James Anderson its doesn't "fight" though. It "bombs".
    Henceforth making it a "bombing" jet.
    But that's cool. Not that it matters or anything.

    Shadow Rider you will never understand what I'm saying because you can't see the forest for the trees. Do you know what fighting means? Read what I said again.

  25. Shadow Rider 6 Aug 2015 Reply

    +James Anderson I have read it SEVERAL times and STILL, it's a BOMBER!!!!!!!

    Now , as for being a COMBAT jet………yes. Its pretty damned cool.

  26. James Anderson 6 Aug 2015 Reply

    I agree it a bomber,this is not the issue, I said fighting jet, not fighter, check the spelling please on all my post, I have said fighting jet this includes all jet planes the military has. Thank you for your concern.
