This is one of the coolest B-1 footages ever!
Filmed on Jul. 26, the video below shows a B-1 Lancer bomber performing multiple high-speed passes in full afterburner and swept wings at dusk, during EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 airshow, the World’s Greatest Aviation Celebration, running from Jul. 24 to 30 in Wisconsin.
Note the “condensation clouds” generated by the aircraft during the flybys: these are a quite common phenomenon during turns and high-G maneuvers when the angle of attack reduced the pressure on the wing’s upper surface bringing the water vapour contained in the air to the condensation temperature.
The footage, taken by Airailimages is truly epic as it lets you watch the high-speed in slow motion.
H/T Ashley Wallace for the heads-up!
North Korea’s going to s*** their freaking pants when these things start flying over
One of the most beautiful bombers of all time!
What a perfect video. It is hands down above any previous video I have seen of the Bone. Damn straight…………this our United States Air Force. Hobbled by a hateful former president and his minions, still a force to be reckoned with. I can only wish that the USAF would allow a demo in our Prescott AZ area.
