Pic of the Day: A B-1 Low and Fast

Happy Monday, everyone. Let's kick this week off on a good note with this awesome pic of a B-1 Lancer bomber, commonly known as the Bone, performing a low-level, high-speed pass in April while practicing for the Fort Lauderdale, Fl., airshow.

Check out the condensation forming around the Bone's four engines and even its Sniper targeting pod up front,  as the plane begins to push towward Mach 1.This particular jet belongs to the 28th Bomb Wing out of Ellsworth AFB in North Dakota, the same unit that participated in the bombing of Gadhafi's forces last year in Libya.
