Ellsworth B-1 Bombers Getting System Upgrades After 11-Year Deployment

After 11 years of continuous deployments, the personnel of the B-1s of Ellsworth will be getting some well earned rest as well as retraining on their new systems. According the Rapid City Journal article, the B-1s themselves will also be undergoing $1 billion in system upgrades that will keep them battlefield relevant for another 10-15 years until the next generation of Air Force bombers come online.
