Hopefully a studious member of the forum can help me with a list of participating airframes, specifically re the (2?) B-1B that attended (BuNo and unit please)

Many thanks

Stay safe!

Indeed an Amazing lineup... I missed the Tu-160 take off in 2018, but clearly recall that B1 taking off for display was pretty epic, also remember the mock inflight refueling RAF Tristar and Tornados..... and the Oryx display that eclipsed the Rooivalk display!!

I joined a Zoom discussion with a retired B1B pilot Chris "Wacky" Wachter (hence the need for the tail numbers of the B1's visiting FAWK - thnx again Darren)

He ("Whacky") actually remembers the visit although being a junior at that time he did not accompany his unit to SA.

I asked him about the two airframes and he had the following remarks:

86-0111 apparently known in the community as "Cripple-one" due to (?peceived/real) numerous maintenance issues! She was the static display after all, although as he rightly pointed out she'd made the trip to SA...

86-0095- He has apparently flown combat mission in this airframe - Combat sorties in Afghan Theatre of Operations


Keep safe


Mods: Hopefully okay if I mention the podcast/website through which I joined the Zoom?.....Checkout "The Fighter Pilot Podcast"
