Especially since it wouldn't be a new build, but upgrades to the existing fleet. I don't think taking too many of them out of service for awhile to do
the upgrades would work out though, especially if done before a new bomber is only partially implemented. And the thought of the stresses put on the
older airframes at those speeds is a little disconcerting too.
But the more I've read about the B-1R, the more I kind of like it.
