Hello, fans and friends, and thanks for checking out the December 4th edition of Aerotech News and Review. Hoo-wee, look at that beautiful shot of the B1-B on the front page! Yes, the Lancer has returned to the skies over Aerospace Valley, this time for an external captive carry flight over Edwards AFB. The Air Force is exploring the possibility that the B-1 might be able to carry hypersonic weapons externally. The hope is to maintain the B-1B as a multi-mission weapon system, potentially laying the groundwork for integration of future weapons on the aircraft. Cool stuff! and we have the story here for you, in your free digital copy of Aerotech News and Review. Just click on the link below to view this week’s issue on your desktop or mobile device.
