Two B-Ones Departing At Night Is Simply Beautiful–Full Afterburners Too
Man Does That Make Me Smile.
The good ol’ Bone. A plane that is coveted by almost anyone who knows about it, yet, many people don’t. A mixture of B-52 and Tomcat (in our opinion because of the wings of course), this plane is incredibly maneuverable despite its purpose and size.
In this video, you’ll get to feast your eyes on two of them taking off…at night! The treat here is the fact that with full afterburners, these things look majestic when they take flight. Check this video out and see for yourself.
These exercises took place at Nellis Air Force Base. Based in Nevada, this is the where pilots become aviators. It’s not a pilot training base, but where already capable pilots come to become the fiercest combat aviators in the world.
In addition to fighter training, they’re also the Air Combat Command which provides bomber, reconnaissance and electronic combat capabilities. The two B-1 Lancers in this video come out of this base.
As for the B-1s, here’s a quick scoop if you don’t know much about them. They’re variable-sweep wing heavy strategic bombers capable of reaching Mach 1.25. With a payload of 126,000 lbs. and range of almost 6,000 miles, this is one bomber you don’t want coming your way.
