The B-1B is the improved variant of the B-1A, which was cancelled in 1977. The program was resurrected in 1981 with the first production model flying in 1984. The B-1B was delivered to the Air Force in 1985.

The B-1B's blended wing/body configuration, variable-geometry design, and turbofan engines continue to provide great range and high speed, more than 900 mph at sea level. Forward wing settings are used for takeoff, landings, and high-altitude maximum cruise. Swept wing settings are used in high subsonic and supersonic flight and also enhance the B-1B's maneuverability.

Though officially named Lancer, the B-B1B is more commonly called the Bone (from B-one). The Bone has three internal bays capable of carrying a variety of weapons, including up to 84 500-lb Mk 82 general-purpose bombs or 24 2,000-pound GBU-31 Joint Direct Attack Munitions.

Georgia Air National Guard 116th Bomb Wing

B-1Bs arrived at Robins Air Force Base in 1996, when the Air National Guard's 116th Bomb Wing (BW) relocated from Dobbins AirReserve Base, Georgia, to Robins. The 116th was one of two Air National Guard units to operate the B-1B. The B-B1s left Robins. The 116th BW merged with the 93rd Air Control Wing (ACW), an active-duty unit, to become the 116 ACW. Operating the E-8C Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System (Joint STARS) aircraft, the 116 ACW blends Guard and active-duty Airmen into a single unit.
