DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- Workers from the Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Center here and maintainers from the 654th Combat Logistics Support Squadron at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla., have regenerated the first B-1B Lancer. After two months of flight preparations, the B-1B took off Sept. 2 for Dyess AFB, Texas. The Lancer, Serial No. 86-0097, entered storage at the center in April 2003 under the Air Force's B-1B consolidation plan. In early 2004, the commander of Air Combat Command directed the recall of this B-1B to supplement fleet requirements supporting the war on terrorism. (U.S. Air Force photo by Terry D. Vanden-Heuvel)
