In turbulent times such as these, it is better to be safe than sorry. What we mean when we say this is better be prepared for any situation than to hope nothing happens! This is one of the reasons why our government spends a lot on our military. Thanks to this spending, the United States of America has the most powerful army in the world! One of the prized possessions of the US Army, or to be more specific the US Air Force, is the Rockwell B-1 Lancer jet. In the video that we are sharing today, you will have the pleasure of seeing this jet soar the skies!
This jet bomber is truly a force to be reckoned with. It is 146 feet long, has a wingspan of 137 feet when the wings are extended and it has a maximum speed of 830 miles per hour! It has been part of the United States Air Force since the 1970s, and it is still going strong. In the video, a whole formation of Rockwell B-1 Lancers soar the skies in a training exercise. Also, they practice aerial refueling, which is quite hard to do! You can sleep safely knowing that these guys are guarding the skies! Watch the video below to see this bomber jet in action!
