Watch out for the deer!


x2 B-1B s (BONE01 & 02) launch from RAF Fairford 9th July 2017

Shortly following the B-52 on the same day, and just after 6am on a chilly summers morning, the regular dawn chorus of rural Gloucestershire was accompanied by the sound of two B-1Bs (85-0084 BONE01 and 86-139 BONE02) out to a Baltops mission somewhere out in the Baltic Sea.

These aircraft come from the 34th BS United States Air Force at Ellsworth AFB in South Dakota.
