The B-1 evolved from a series of studies in the 1960s into a long-range bomber that could fly at low altitudes and high speeds to penetrate Soviet airspace for extended periods. The first B-1B rolled off the assembly line in Palmdale, Calif., on September 4, 1984, and was delivered to the Strategic Air Command in June 1985. B-1B production ramped up to four aircraft per month until the 100th and final B-1B rolled out of Palmdale on January 20, 1988, on budget and ahead of schedule. Made of molded polyurethane, which is sanded, painted, clear-coated and cured after decals are applied. Stand included (stand styles may vary).
