Persons or organizations wishing to request a B-1 bomber fly-over or static display for their events must visit the USAF Aerial Events website and click on the "New Requests" tab.After following all directions, filling out the aerial support request form and gaining approval to Secretary of Air Force Public Affairs, requestors should call the 28BW/PAoffice at (605) 385-5056 to request a B-1 from Ellsworth Air Force Base.
Requestors must be aware that Ellsworth cannot provide aerial support for an event until it has been approved by SAF/PA. Also, once an event is approved by SAF/PA that does not commit Ellsworth to supporting the event. Due to high operations tempo and the number of aerial support requests the 28th Bomb Wing receives, the base does not have the aircraft or manpower to support all requests.
After following all directions, filling out the aerial support request form and gaining approval to Secretary of Air Force Public Affairs, requestors should call the 28th Bomb Wing Public Affairs office at (605) 385-5056 to request a B-1 from Ellsworth. After the SAF/PA has approved an event and Ellsworth has been notified, a member of the 28th BW/PA staff will contact the requestor to notify him/her if Ellsworth can support his/her event.
Finally, all events Ellsworth agrees to support with a B-1 presence are tentative pending real-world requirements.
