Airmen looking for household items and clothing can now scan the shelves and racks of the B -One Yard thrift and consignment shop, which recently reopened. The B-One Yard closed in June in order to reorganize and make improvements to the facility. "People were asking us all summer when we were going to reopen," said Regan Porter, B-One Yard

A B-29 Superfortress is parked in the aircraft parking area at Royal Air Force Scampton, England. This B-29 was part of several deployed from Ellsworth during the Berlin Airlift in 1948.  The B-29s were sent as a deterrent against communist aggression in Germany.  While the communist forces significantly outnumbered the Western military units conducting the humanitarian operation, the lethality of U.S. airpower from World War II was still a fresh memory. This deployment helped deter communist aggression and the airlift was successful. This month in history: B-29 takes maiden flight
Late September, 1942, Seattle saw the maiden flight of the aircraft destined to end World War II and become the same type of aircraft Ellsworth would send on its first deployment as a separate Air Force. The B-29 Superfortress, the largest bomber fielded in World War II, didn't make its combat debut until nearly two years after its initial

Senior Airman Nat Perez, 28th Operations Support Squadron air traffic controller, says he gains strength from his cultural heritage.

When the B-1B Lancer flies missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, it relies not only on the pilot and proper maintenance - it relies on a sophisticated system to counter America's enemies. Because of the sensitivity of this system, a highly skilled team of electronic warfare technicians is needed to maintain

Default Air Force Logo Different dialects comprise one voice of blue defending America
With a multitude of backgrounds from all over the world, it's no surprise Airmen's various dialects can lead to confusion. Wanting a grinder during lunch sounds like an errand to go the hardware store, unless one is from Connecticut, according to Mr. Charles Grosvenor's Web site titled, "A list of words unique to New England." Another New England

Default Air Force Logo Taking care of our own
Though Air Force first sergeants can be recognized by a diamond device in the upper blue field of their chevron, what may not be recognizable is the amount of knowledge, skill and dedication that comes with being a "shirt." As first sergeants, these men and women are directly responsible for the welfare, morale and conduct of all the enlisted

This tool kit contains equipment to service Ellsworth’s B-1B Lancers here, August 19. Maintainers fine-tune the B-1s 24 hours a day to ensure flight capabilities. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Kasey Zickmund) Profiles of the B-1: Crew Chief
The B-1B Lancer can travel faster than the speed of sound and carry a payload of 75,000 pounds, which makes it far more complex than the wooden, gasoline-powered flyer the Wright brothers used. This elaborate configuration requires the B-1 to use a dedicated maintenance team to keep it in the air. "It takes a lot of hard work to get this jet to

An American military member readies his motorcycle for operations in the deserts of Southwest Asia during the first Gulf War. The motorcycle has a distinct military heritage, which began in World War I and continues today. The protective leather gear worn by Airmen in the hostile skies in World War II was the same type of clothing returning servicemembers donned when America’s fledgling motorcycle clubs were started by many returning veterans.

This month in history: World War II fosters modern motorcycle clubs
America's history with motorcycles begins in the early 1900's when a motorcycle was essentially a bicycle fitted with a small motor. This mode of transportation, according to William Dulaney of the International Journal of Motorcycle Studies in his 2005 research article, was a "relatively affordable vehicle for most Americans, especially when
