Was this action by the B1, the first combat use of this aircraft? I guess we can thank Ronald Reagan for saving the aircraft, as Jimmie Carter scrapped the B1A. John

The B-1B was used against targets in Iraq in 98, SOF made two articles on them at that time.

Cool, you work at Nortrhop-Grumman in the East Building? I worked on the B1-B radar system for the Block D upgrades.

Nah - I worked in Hunt Valley at the ERC before they relocated it to BWI. I got laid off at the end of the cold war (it was still Westinghouse). I still know a few folks at NG though and go to the King's Dominion Family Day trip every October. I miss it a lot, but I'm in telecom now and things are looking up.
