    The Rockwell (now part of Boeing) B-1 Lancer is a four-engine variable-sweep wing strategic bomber used by the United States Air Force (USAF). First envisioned in the 1960s as a supersonic bomber with sufficient range and payload to replace the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, it developed primarily into a low-level penetrator with long range and supersonic speed capability at high altitude.

    ...The initial B-1A version was developed in the early 1970s, but its production was canceled, and only four prototypes were built. The need for a new platform once again surfaced in the early 1980s, and the aircraft resurfaced as the B-1B version with the focus on low-level penetration bombing. However by this point development of stealth technology was promising an aircraft of dramatically improved capability. Production went ahead as the B-1B would be operational before these "Advanced Technology Bomber" concepts, during a period when the B-52 would be increasingly vulnerable. It entered service in 1986 with the USAF Strategic Air Command as a nuclear bomber.

    In the 1990s, the B-1B was converted to conventional bombing use. It first served in combat during Operation Desert Fox in 1998 and again during the NATO action in Kosovo the following year. The B-1B continues to support U.S. and NATO military forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Lancer is the supersonic component of the USAF's long-range bomber force, along with the subsonic B-52 and Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit. The bomber is commonly called the "Bone" (originally from "B-One"). With the retirement of the General Dynamics/Grumman EF-111A Raven in 1998 and the Grumman F-14 Tomcat in 2006, the B-1B is the U.S. military's only active variable-sweep wing aircraft. The B-1B is expected to continue to serve into the 2020s, when it is to be supplemented by the Next Generation Bomber.

    Background

    In December 1957, the U.S. Air Force selected North American Aviation's proposal to replace the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress with the B-70 Valkyrie. The Valkyrie was a six-engine bomber that could reach Mach 3 speeds at high altitude... By the late 1950s, however, anti-aircraft surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) could threaten high-altitude aircraft...

    The USAF Strategic Air Command (SAC) began moving its bombers to low-level penetration before the U-2 downing... the B-70 bomber program was canceled in 1961... and the two XB-70 prototypes were used in a supersonic research program.

    The first post-B-70 strategic penetrator study was known as the Subsonic Low Altitude Bomber (SLAB), which was completed in 1961...

    ...These all culminated in the October 1963 Advanced Manned Precision Strike System (AMPSS), which led to industry studies at Boeing, General Dynamics, and North American. In mid-1964... retitled the project as Advanced Manned Strategic Aircraft (AMSA), which differed from AMPSS primarily in that it also demanded a high-speed high-altitude capability..

    McNamara remained opposed to the program in favor of upgrading the existing B-52 fleet and adding nearly 300 FB-111s for shorter range roles then being filled by the B-58. He again vetoed funding for AMSA aircraft development in 1968...

    President Richard Nixon re-established the program after taking office...

    During the 1976 federal election campaign, Jimmy Carter made it one of the Democratic Party's platforms, saying "The B-1 bomber is an example of a proposed system which should not be funded and would be wasteful of taxpayers' dollars..."

    Reagan decided the best solution was to purchase both the B-1 and ATB (later B-2), and this eventually led to Reagan's 2 October 1981 announcement that 100 aircraft of a new version of the B-1 was being ordered...

    The second B-1B, "The Star of Abilene", was the first B-1B delivered to the USAF Strategic Air Command (SAC) in June 1985. Initial operational capability was reached on 1 October 1986 and the B-1B was placed on nuclear alert status...

    WORLDS LARGEST Military Transport Aircraft owned by the US Air Force
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Oct 31, 2016
    Have a look in side the most largest aircraft of the US Air Force the C-5 Galaxy Military transport aircraft.

    SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. - People attending the 2010 Airpower Over the Midwest Airshow Sept. 11-12 were able to catch a glimpse of a C-5M Super Galaxy from Dover Air Force Base, Del.

    The C-5M Super Galaxy has the latest upgrades in communications, navigation, surveillance and air traffic management, autopilot and safety equipment for the C-5 airframe, Air Mobility Command officials note.

    AMC began an aggressive program to modernize all remaining C-5Bs and C-5Cs and many of the C-5As in its inventory. The C-5 Avionics Modernization Program began in 1998 and included upgraded avionics, improved communications, new flat panel displays, improved navigation and safety equipment, and a new autopilot system. The first flight of the first AMP-modified C-5 (tail number 85-0004) occurred on Dec. 21, 2002.

    Another part of the C-5 modernization plan is the Reliability Enhancement and Re-engining Program, which includes new General Electric CF6-80C2 engines, pylons and auxiliary power units, with upgrades to the aircraft skin and frame, landing gear, cockpit and pressurization system.

    The C-5 aircraft that undergo both the AMP and RERP upgrades are designated C-5M, also known as the "Super Galaxy." The Air Force plans to upgrade 52 Galaxies to "super" status by the end of 2016.

    Each of the C-5M's CF6 engines produces 50,000 foot-pounds of thrust; up from the 43,000 pounds generated by the older General Electric TF-39 engines. The 22 percent increase in thrust results in a 30 percent shorter take-off roll, a 38 percent higher climb rate to initial altitude, a significantly increased cargo load, and a longer range between refueling.

    To put this into perspective, a C-5M with 50,000 pounds of fuel only needs 1,500 feet of runway to get airborne, while the legacy C-5s need between 3,000 to 4,000 feet. Additionally, a C-5M, at an average Takeoff Gross Weight above 600,000 lbs, can climb to cruising altitude of 34,000 feet in 18 minutes while legacy C-5s need 33 minutes to reach 25,000 feet. The faster climb saves fuel since less is needed at its cruising altitude.

    The AMP and RERP modernization programs are expected to raise the Mission Capable Rate to a minimum wartime goal of 75 percent, at an average procurement unit cost of $119 million per plane, which includes the aircraft and logistics support.

    And the warfighter isn't the only one who benefits from Super Galaxy; the Air Force estimates the C-5M will save taxpayers in excess of $17 billion over the next 40 years.

    As for the airshow, more than 180,000 people attended during both days and tens of thousands of visitors stopped to see the C-5M on display.

    OLD BUT GOOD !!! US Military AH-1 Super Cobra Military Helicopter
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Nov 5, 2016
    A great video of US Military AH-1 Super Cobra military helicopter aircraft in live fire exercise. WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD, Hawaii – The 25th Combat Aviation Brigade added 24 advanced multi-role combat helicopters in the form of the AH-64D Apache to its arsenal this past April and celebrated the new capability here June 9.

    The ceremony provided a formal way to welcome the aircraft’s arrival and celebrate the historical event.

    “The purpose of the ceremony is really to recognize two years of work and the unbelievable amount of people that have been making such a day-to-day effort to bring this to fruition,” said Lt. Col. Aaron Martin, Commander of 2nd Squadron, 6th Battalion.

    Martin said that the ceremony also provided the opportunity to recognize all the hard work done by those involved in getting the Apaches here.

    “The Hawaiian local government that has allowed the Apaches to come here to be flying throughout that air space, to the Army aviation branch that has gone and prioritized this squadron in the Pacific to get these, the turning in of the Kiowa Warrior, U.S. Army Pacific’s effort to coordinate all that across not only the National Guard, the Army branch itself,” Martin said. “Within the PACOM Theater of operations this is an added capability we are bringing not only to this island but the entire Pacific region.”

    The addition of the high performance aircraft replaced the OH-58 Kiowa Warriors that were recently retired. The new Apaches are planned to be paired with Shadow unmanned aerial vehicles to create an attack and reconnaissance role.

    U.S. Army Capt. Marisa Yarmie, Bravo Troop Company commander, 2nd Squadron, 6th Battalion, 25th Combat Aviation Brigade, said that the addition of the Apache will increase mission effectiveness.

    “I think the Apache is an aircraft that really tends to lead us toward interoperability not just with the forces on the ground though that is our main mission,” Yarmie said. “I think that with the technology that we have to link in with the unmanned aerial systems… that is something that will really help to increase our reach in the region as well as assist us in working with our joint partners in the Navy, Marines, and Air Force and as well as working with our multinational partners.”

    At the end of the ceremony, military leadership including General Robert Brown, Commander of U.S. Army Pacific, Lt. Gen. Anthony Crutchfield, Deputy Commander of U.S. Pacific Command, and Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn, Commander of the 25th Infantry Division, participated in a Hawaiian blessing for the new Apaches.

    Brown also recognized the capability that the Apache brings to the mission but emphasized what he believes is the most important part of the Army’s arsenal.

    “It’s not just the aircraft, but of course you look at [the Apache] and you can’t help but be impressed by the machine,” Brown said. “The Army’s advantage is the people and it’s those pilots in that aircraft. We provide them with the best equipment in the world, the best training in the world, but it’s the people that are our advantage.”

    MOST POWERFUL !!! US Air Force Aircraft on FULL AFTERBURNER
    ArmedForcesUpdate



    Published on Nov 6, 2016
    A great video of US Air Force aircraft on Full Afterburner
    FORT STEWART, Ga. – The AH-64 Apache helicopter pilots of the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade along with field artillery from 1st Battalion, 9th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division Artillery teamed with Marine F/A-18 Hornet pilots of the Marine All Weather Fighter Attack Squadron 224, Marine Aircraft Group 31 to deliver deadly accurate fire during Joint Air Attack Team training on Fort Stewart May 22.

    The JAAT was part of the two week Falcon Focus training exercise where the 3rd CAB is validating Soldier skills and mission command systems for future operations around the world.

    Staff Sgt. Trevor Swords, Troop B, 6th Squadron, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team has conducted JAAT training in a war zone and observed the impacts from the observation post.

    “A JAAT is a term used when you are massing fires on an objective or series of targets within close proximity of one another using different assets,” Swords said. “Today we are having 155mm Howitzers engaging targets simultaneously with a F/A-18 from the Marine Corps all at the same time, we have AH-64 Apaches engaging with rockets and 30mm rounds.”

    An MQ-1C Gray Eagle unmanned aerial system from Company E, 3rd CAB guided artillery along with providing the targeting laser for Hellfire anti-tank missiles fired by Apache Helicopters.

    Chief Warrant Officer 2 Barry Galinger, brigade fire support officer, 3rd CAB spoke of the added benefit the training provides for the future battlefield.

    “The benefit of the joint training is you never know where you’re at, and you never know who’s going to be there for you when you’re out in combat,” Galinger said. “Identifying these types of training events and working together we get comfortable, so we know who’s up there, and we know how they’re going to react for us when we need timely fire.”

    After the training, 3rd CAB commander, Col. Jeffrey Becker commented on how he felt everything went.

    “Not only did that Joint Air Attack Team training event include all the components of the joint force, it absolutely showed the capability of combining the manned unmanned system and a maneuver team of AH-64D Apaches and MQ-1C Gray Eagle UAV,” Becker said. “The aircraft maneuvered as part of the JAAT to find and destroy the enemy armor formation that was moving our way. It was highly effective and highly lethal.”

    Becker said this is key in today’s military where we need to maximize the value of our training dollar. The training is also important as the unit prepares for a War Fighter training exercise later this year.

    “This training exercise has proven that the combat aviation brigade is an enormous part of a divisions maneuver capabilities with the speed, flexibility, mobility and lethality that we bring to bear with the systems that we employ,” Becker said.

    EXERCISE POLAR STRIKE, ALASKA, 25 JANUARY - 18 FEBRUARY 1965

    US Air Force film FR-518

    Public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.
    The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDonne...

    The McDonnell F-101 Voodoo was a supersonic jet fighter which served the United States Air Force (USAF) and the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF).

    Initially designed by McDonnell Aircraft as a long-range bomber escort (known as a penetration fighter) for the Strategic Air Command (SAC), the Voodoo was instead developed as a nuclear-armed fighter-bomber for the Tactical Air Command (TAC), and as a photo reconnaissance aircraft based on the same airframe. An F-101A set a number of world speed records for jet powered aircraft, including fastest airspeed, attaining 1,207.6 miles (1,943.4 km) per hour on December 12, 1957. They operated in the reconnaissance role until 1979.

    Delays in the 1954 interceptor project led to demands for an interim interceptor aircraft design, a role that was eventually won by the B model of the Voodoo. This required extensive modifications to add a large radar to the nose of the aircraft, a second crewmember to operate it, and a new weapons bay using a rotating door that kept its four AIM-4 Falcon missiles or two AIR-2 Genie rockets hidden within the airframe until it was time to be fired. The F-101B entered service with Air Defense Command in 1959 and the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1961. US examples were handed off to the Air National Guard where they served until 1982. Canadian examples remained in service until 1984...

    RF-101C

    Using the reinforced airframe of the F-101C, the RF-101C first flew on 12 July 1957, entering service in 1958. Like the RF-101A, the RF-101C had up to six cameras in place of radar and cannons in the reshaped nose and retained the bombing ability of the fighter-bomber versions. 166 RF-101Cs were built, including 96 originally scheduled to be F-101C fighter-bombers.

    The 1964 Project "Toy Tiger" fitted some RF-101C with a new camera package and a centerline pod for photo-flash cartridges. Some were further upgraded under the Mod 1181 program with automatic control for the cameras.

    The RF-101C saw service during the Cuban Missile Crisis and soon followed the North American F-100 Super Sabres in October 1961, into combat when RF-101s from the 67th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing deployed to Vietnam. The RF-101C was deployed operationally during the Vietnam War, sustaining losses with the first F-101 being lost in November 1964 to ground fire. From 1965 through November 1970, its role was gradually taken over by the RF-4C Phantom II. In some 35,000 sorties, 39 aircraft were lost, 33 in combat, including five to SAMs, one to an airfield attack, and one in air combat to a MiG-21 in September 1967. The RF-101C's speed made it largely immune to MiG interception. 27 of the combat losses occurred on reconnaissance missions over North Vietnam. In April 1967, ALQ-71 ECM pods were fitted to provide some protection against SAMs. Although the Voodoo was again able to operate at medium altitudes, the added drag and weight decreased the speed enough to make RF-101 vulnerable to the maneuverable (and cannon-equipped) MiGs and thus requiring fighter escort.

    On 27 November 1957 during Operation Sun Run, an RF-101C piloted by then-Captain Robert Sweet set the Los Angeles-New York City-Los Angeles record in 6 hours 46 minutes, and the New York to Los Angeles record in 3 hours, 36 minutes. Another RF-101C, piloted by then-Lieutenant Gustav Klatt, set the Los Angeles to New York record in 3 hours 7 minutes.

    After withdrawal from Vietnam, the RF-101C continued to serve with USAF units through 1979.

    In service, the RF-101C was nicknamed the "Long Bird;" it was the only version of the Voodoo to see combat...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas...

    The Douglas C-124 Globemaster II, nicknamed "Old Shaky", was a heavy-lift cargo aircraft built by the Douglas Aircraft Company in Long Beach, California.

    The C-124 was the primary heavy-lift transport for United States Air Force Military Air Transport Service (MATS) during the 1950s and early 1960s, until the Lockheed C-141 Starlifter entered service. It served in MATS-gained, later Military Airlift Command (MAC)-gained, units of the Air Force Reserve and Air National Guard until 1974...

    Old B-52 Bomber • Modern World Of Nuclear Hurt
    Gung Ho Vids



    Published on Nov 26, 2016
    Although older than most people alive nowadays, the B-52 has been upgraded and modernized. It's not really used as a bomber anymore. It's used more as a deterrent - a nuclear cruise missile delivery platform. Think about a nuclear missile submarine flying in the sky. For example, a Trident Nuclear Submarine can deliver 24 atomic missiles. And on the other hand, one B-52H Statofortress can launch 26 Nuclear Cruise Missiles (from up to 600 miles away from the target). That's a lot of firepower for just one airplane.

    Pilot vlog 104. A Cessna Citation XLS flight to Cartersville, Ga and Nassau. The Cartersville landing has ATC. Our passengers finally showed up about thirty minutes later in a huge hurry to get going. The ride for the one passenger we dropped off never showed so they borrowed the courtesy car, all jumped in and delivered him where he needed to go.
