    B-1 Bomber Coming to Oshkosh?

    Anybody know if the B-1 is coming again this year? The kids absolutely loved it last year and in 2017 too! Would love to see it again this year!

    It truly was spectacular both years, for very different reasons.

    In 2017, its run on the powered parachutes was impressive, and in 2018, the circling afterburner climb was amazing.

    My favorite part about the afterburner circling, was for how long you could hear it after you could no longer see it.

    I live about 6 miles SE of Tinker AFB and RIGHT in the traffic pattern, there's a few B-1's out there. They do have a sound of they're own for sure. We get to see them pretty much on a regular basis.
    One day I took off in the 172, made a slight right turn, and there was a B-1 about my same altitude a couple of miles (probably a lot more) or so away just off my left wing tip. Pretty awesome.
