    COMM:"...Rumsfeld was once a navy pilot so he flew the B1 personally......the plane he flew was one of 3 prototypes built for the Air Force......the Secretary of Defence said 'It handles exceedingly well'. The Air Force is seeking Congressional approval to go ahead with production of 244 of these cockpit new aircraft...they will cost more than 20 billion dollars.....the Air Force says it must have the B1 to replace the ageing B52.................



    ........after the ride he said this;"



    ENG SOF:"This aircraft is considerably improved....it will have a price tag..critics will claim is too high........most American people are willing to pay for that which is necessary..."



    COMM:"Flight testing will continue for the new bomber......despite the critics the Senate is also expected to give its approval"
