American bomber crashes in South Dakota.

After Japan, now a plane has crashed in America. Although it was a passenger plane. This was a bomber plane of the US Army, which had 4 crew members on board. The incident took place at Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. A B-1 Lancer bomber plane crashed here on Thursday. However, all four crew members were evacuated safely. The US Air Force has given this information. American military officials have heaved a sigh of relief after the lives of the crew members were saved. It is coming to light that the accident may have occurred due to bad weather.

The B-1 crashed while attempting to land at the Air Force base at about 5:50 p.m. (Thursday), the 28th Bomb Wing in Ellsworth said in a statement. It was on a training mission at the time of the accident. During this time, four people were on board the plane and everyone was taken out safely. Visibility at the base was low due to subzero temperatures and overcast conditions at the time of the accident, according to the automatic weather reporting equipment that records airfield conditions. It is believed that the pilot could not see anything clearly due to low visibility. Therefore it became a victim of an accident.

B-1 is a supersonic bomber

The B-1 is an American supersonic bomber aircraft, which was first inducted into service in the 1980s. It was used during air support missions in the US operations in the Asia-Pacific region and Afghanistan. There is no permission to transport nuclear weapons. But it is one of America’s most dangerous bombers. (AP)
