A B-1 Lancer from Ellsworth Air Force Base crashed in Montana today. All four crew members ejected safely with some injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the crew and their families.

I still remember the day when we lost one right off the coast of Diego Garcia in 2001. Nothings worse for a Crew Chief then to lose his aircraft.edit on 19-8-2013 by iwan2ski because: (no reason given)

Both. They started with C-119s and Discoverer, and upgraded to C-130s and HH-53s, and later programs. If they couldn't grab them in the air the helicopters would get them from the surface.
