Official Says B-1B Bomber Crash Was An Anomaly

Official Says B-1B Bomber Crash Was An Anomaly
August 2013

RAPID CITY, SD -

An Ellsworth Air Force Base leader says the crash of a B-1B bomber last August during a training exercise over southeastern Montana was an anomaly and not indicative of a bigger problem in the 30-year-old bomber fleet.

An Air Force report released earlier this week says the crash was caused by a mechanical malfunction that started a fuel leak. About 7,000 pounds of fuel leaked into the aircraft and was ignited by hot ductwork, leading to a series of detonations in the plane.

The four crew members safely ejected. No one on the ground was hurt.

Ellsworth 28th Bomb Wing Vice Commander Col. Gentry Boswell says the B-1 has a proven track record, and the mechanical failure was not tied to the plane's age.
