Wilson Recounts Harrowing Minutes for B-1 Crew after Seat Fails to Eject

In the stirring conclusion to her keynote remarks at the 2018 Defense Communities National Summit Monday, Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson recounted the courage of a B-1 crew responding to a fire in the wing. When the seat of the first crew member attempting to eject malfunctioned, the commander of the B-1 Lancer decided to attempt an emergency landing. A transcript of the crew’s story as told by the secretary can be found in Air Force Times.
