Hello everyone, and thank you for checking out the October 1 issue of Aerotech News and Review! A staple in the skies over Aerospace Valley, the B-1B Lancer continues its retirement journey, with 17 other aircraft now retired. The handover of the aircraft supports the US Air Force‘s efforts to modernize the US bomber fleet, paving the way for the eventual deployment of the B-21 Raider. “Continued operations over the past 20 years have taken their toll on our B-1B fleet, and the plane we retired would have taken between $ 10 million and $ 30 million per plane to revert to a standstill fleet at short term until B -21 is coming online, “said Brigadier. Gen. Kenyon Bell, AFGSC Director of Logistics and Engineering.
