Newly Expanded Powder River Training Complex to See First Training Missions

Ellsworth AFB is preparing to send its first B-1 bombers to the recently expanded Powder River Complex for training missions. According to the Rapid City Journal article, the newly expanded area, nearly four times its original size, will result in better training for bomber crews and a cost savings of nearly $23 million for the base thanks in part to not needing to send the bombers off to distant training areas anymore.
