A B-1 bomber crashes into a South Dakota Air Force post after landing. Crew safely ejects

According to reports out of Washington, DC, — The Air Force announced that a B-1 Lancer bomber from South Dakota's Ellsworth Air Force Base crashed during landing attempts, but all four crew members were able to exit safely.

The 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth released a statement saying the B-1 crashed Thursday evening while on a training flight.

The airfield circumstances were recorded by automatic weather reporting equipment as poor visibility, low clouds, and cold temperatures. 

The crash is being investigated by the military.

A statement issued on Friday stated that three crew members were treated for minor injuries on base and then discharged

A nearby hospital was treating the fourth crew member, who had injuries that were not life-threatening.

Initially deployed in the 1980s, the B-1 is a traditional supersonic bomber. Close air support flights in support of U.S. operations in Afghanistan and the Asia-Pacific area have both made use of it. It is devoid of nuclear weaponry.

The initial order was 100, but only around 60 are still flying out of Ellsworth and Dyess Air Force Base in Texas.
