The US Air Force’s only serving variable-sweep wing aircraft is the B-1 Lancer bomber. The futuristic design was originally conceived in order to create a long-range, low-level, supersonic penetrator bomber that could deliver nuclear weapons. Built by Rockwell, the B-1B Lancer appeared in 1986, and it has now been converted to conventional bomber missions. A typical bomb load of the “Bone” (the name is taken from its designation B-One) includes the GBU-31 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM), a weapon that was heavily used in Iraq. One operator of the B-1B is the 34th Bomb Squadron (34 BS) of the 28th Bomb Wing (24 BW). This unit is located at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota, and it has participated in numerous missions in Iraq and Afghanistan. 28 BW is one of only two strategic bomber wings in the USAF, with 67 Lancers remaining in service.
