b1b article (not a51 related, but probably of interest to the forum)

Interesting article from a number of viewpoints. One, it now confirms the b1b is not history. Two, it mentions a new missle being added to the b1b, i.e. "air-to-surface standoff missile". And lastly, what I found the most interesting:

For Operation Enduring Freedom, it has been the B-1B Lancer that has done the lion's share of the work, dropping nearly 40 percent of the ordnance, while flying only 5 percent of the strike sorties.
