066 – B-1 Lancer

Featured Guest
Lieutenant Colonel Chris “Wacky” Wachter
US Air Force (Retired)

Bomber Month marches on with the former Rockwell (now Boeing) B-1 Lancer.

This week, retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel Chris Wachter joins us to talk about the bomber canceled by one president but reinstated by another in a role quite different from what was originally intended. The “Bone,” which in many ways is unlike any other bomber–such as swing-wings and afterburning engines–remains a vital part of the U.S. arsenal employing a wide array of weapons in a host of missions.

Here is a link to the article regarding a “Bomber for the U.S. Navy.”
