B-1B Lancer

B-1B Lancer, 86-0109, 'Spectre' taxis at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, Oct. 26, 2018, with parts of the Oklahoma City skyline visible in the background. The jet was ferried from Midland International Air and Space Port to Tinker where it will undergo depot-level maintenance and upgrades with the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex today. 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 & Space Port.
