B-1B Tops Military Lineup at Farnborough

The Pentagon had some heavy-hitting aircraft in Britain this week at the Farnborough International Air Show. Setting the pace was a USAF B-1B bomber, which thundered over the show at an altitude of 500 feet three times per day. The B-1B belongs to the Air Force 20th Bomb Squadron, located at Dyess AFB, Tex. Also on hand were the Air Force’s F-15C, F-15E, and F-16C fighters, C-17A airlifter, and C-130J transport. The show ends this weekend.
