I am a huge fan of the Lancer. I've seen them do fly-by demos at air shows and they are truly terrifying at low altitude. This book is so technical and so dry that it literally boils out the essence of what it's like to fly one of these monsters on the deck at 600 knots. That's a bit of a shame. But you WILL learn about the purpose of every bolt on this aircraft...

Format: Paperback
This book is essential for anyone who has more than a passing interest in the Bone. It covers the basic history of the B-1 as it progressed from the B-1A program that was canceled by the Carter administration only to be revised and revamped as the B-1B under Ronald Reagan. Originally designed with a very specialized cold war low-level super-sonic nuclear delivery mission, the B-1B made the soviets very nervous. The dismantling of it's nuclear mission was a key component of the START treaty with the former USSR. Where this book really excells is in it's coverage of what the B-1 has become since those days. It's evolution into an extremely capable conventional bomber is fascinating. Withington covers it's key roles in Desert Fox and Kosovo in great detail. As time passed the brilliant coupling of the B-1s remarkable weapons load and endurance with precision weapons has turned it into a lethal Close Air Support platform. Again, Withington's work here is excellent. This thorouogh history is complemented by many detailed interviews with past and present aircrew members and some great photos. As with all fine Osprey series books, there is also a section of color plates showing all the B-1 tails with their unit paint scheme and nose art. Even jets that have changed squadrons and nose art have all their iterations included - very very cool. As I said, this book is a must have for anyone interested in this fast sexy beast of an airplane!

This is a great book to have.Im glad i own it.I learned so much about this awesome aircraft that we have.Strange that Carter had put an end to this great war plane but Reagan had put a stop to it and made it reality.Plus you will learn about the different weapon systems this plane can carry.
