B-1 Flyover Rescheduled For Aug. 11

ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D. -- A B-1 bomber from the 28th Bomb Wing is scheduled to conduct a flyover down Main Street in Sturgis, S.D., at 3 p.m., Aug. 11.

The B-1 flyover is allowed as part of an approved training mission. Residents living in and near the city of Sturgis could experience an increased noise level related to the flyovers.

This event will be held in honor of military veterans across the Black Hills, and was rescheduled from when it was originally planned at 3 p.m., Aug. 9, due to maintenance and mission requirements.

With a crew of four, the B-1 can travel as fast as 900 miles per hour and carry more than 50,000 pounds of munitions in a variety of configurations. It is a highly versatile, multi-mission weapon system, carrying the largest payload of both guided and unguided weapons in the Air Force inventory for operations.

For more information, call the 28th Bomb Wing Public Affairs Office at (605) 385-5056 or visit www.ellsworth.af.mil.
