There have been emergency landings there before for military craft, no?
A quick google provided me with 2 examples already.
Did you see any of those? From experience the most remarkable things happen daily. The vast amount never get reported or recorded in the wrong way. I’ve also worked with our American cousins and I can say when they turn up to party nothing is impossible, the level of security and secrecy is impressive to say the least. I’m sure others on the forum will agree if they don’t want people to know you won’t.
Now look the guy who told had no reason to lie, but it’s up to you, I trusted him with my life for years as did he. All I was doing was passing on what I thought was a fun little thing he brought up. That’s all i’m Just going to go back to lurking now...

Thanks for bringing up his quotes from the original thread!
I was going by memory and hadnt read that thread for quite some time.
Im in total agreement with SpeedFanatics OP and your subsequent posts that it operated in the SEAD/DEAD role by circumstance and not design. Mere common sense tells us that.
What was its originally designed role? Something related to nuclear? This was the B-1 era, right?
Earlier in the thread I was thinking out loud along the lines of defence/EW/SEAD for, or along side the B1, it being fast, low level, swing wing and also like the "companion" had its mission changed.
