The Rockwell (Now part of Boeing) B-1 Lancer is a four engine, supersonic variable sweep swing strategic bomber developed in the 1960s originally to replace the aging B-52 Stratofortress. The bomber's original design has evolved into the current B-1B Lancer, a low-level penetration bomber with a long range as well as Mach 1.25 capability at high altitudes.

The B-1 made it's first flight on 23 December 1974, entering service in the 1st of October in 1986, and continues to serve to this day. There are currently 101 built, 1 B-1A and 100 B-1Bs.
