    Say A Long, Slow Goodbye to B-1 & B-2 Bombers

    http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone...-is-a-good-one

    On February 11th, 2017 Aviation Week reported that the USAF has created an updated "bomber vector," basically its future roadmap for its bomber platforms, which includes divesting both the B-1B and B-2A fleets fully by the mid 2030s. This development is especially eyebrow-raising for the B-2 community which was slated to serve into the second half of the century and continues to receive an array of upgrades that would supposedly allow it to do so effectively.

    On the other side of the coin, the B-52, BUFF will still be flying of course until 2050 with updated avionics and engines.
