A photo of the B1 would be helpful. How big is the B1 fleet and what is the price tag on one aircraft?

Of course, you're correct,medvezhonok, but an illustration, cost and size of fleet are basic reporting.

A beautiful looking plane only eclipsed by the F-14 in shapeliness. Too bad it's way outdated as the cold war has been over for years. The AF used them in Iraq and Afghanistan only to demonstrate they still had value; though other much more cost effective weapons/platforms could have been used.

Go to Ellsworth AFB and if you are lucky you will get to see and HEAR one take off. Pretty awesome!

Info from the article: South Dakota's Ellsworth Air Force Base has 28 of the planes. The only other base with B-1B crews is Dyess Air Force Base in Abilene, Texas. The cost of a B-1B bomber is about $283 million. But no photo.
