Ellsworth B-1B Models Arrival
Just in time for the Fourth of July, Ellsworth marked B-1B desk models have landed at the gift shop! These handsome mahogany models are hand-carved, painted, and specially created with the markings of the 34th and 37th Bomb squadrons based at Ellsworth. The "Ogre" B-1's at Ellsworth are also well-represented with their own specially marked B-1 model. The fin flashes, aircraft numbers, nose art, and squadron patches are all crafted by hand to create faithful replicas of the B-1's currently stationed at Ellsworth Air Force Base.
