B-1B Lancer
Exhibit: B-1B Lancer

Comments: This variable geometry, 4 engined low observable bomber with a crew of 4 was conceived as a replacement for the B-52 Stratofortress. It's mission changed post Cold War from strategic nuclear strike to precision low level strike, with a payload of over 84 Mk-82 500lb bombs.

Chino reported: :

" My brother Glen and I got some great pix from the Cape Cod Air Show on Saturday despite intermittent cloudy/rainy conditions, including this one of a B-1B making a high-speed wings-swept pass. The high humidity made for some cool vapor-compression effects."
