B-1B Lancer
Seen through heat-haze is B-1B Lancer, 86-0109, as it arrives at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, Oct. 26, 2018 where it will undergo depot-level maintenance and upgrades with the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex. During a routine training flight May 1, the Dyess AFB based B-1B had an in-flight emergency resulting in an attempted ejection. The first crewmembers’ seat failed to deploy and the aircraft commander halted the ejection sequence and heroically saved the aircraft and crew by landing at Midland International Air and Space Port.
