Another exciting rendition of B-1B Lancer is set to join the Dragon Warbirds fleet. The B-1 Lancer bomber is the US Air Force’s only serving variable-sweep wing aircraft. The futuristic design was conceived 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 since been converted to carry out conventional bomber missions. Today a total of 67 “Bones” (the name is taken from its designation B-One) remain in service with the USAF.
The new Dragon Warbirds model depicts an aircraft from the official Lancer Test Program. As such, it is resplendent in a white coat of paint and with the appropriate test program markings, including the colorful livery on the tail. The die-cast metal fuselage has been mated to plastic injection-molded wings and landing gear. Of interest, the variable-sweep wings are set in their forward-most ‘unswept’ position for low-speed flight or takeoff and landing. The lines and details of this white test B-1B Lancer are accurately replicated, and it comes with its own sleek display stand.
