So Im noticing something. Many of the books Ive read about the B-1B note that the ECM fairing on the bottom side the tail was changed by 2001 and that the wierd diomond shaped blister is the current configuration. However, I am noticing that about half of B-1B's have this blister and the other half still have the two blade antenna configuration. This is the same with the under belly between the landing gear. As far as I can tell the blister replaced the blade anntena on about half of B-1B's around 1997-2000. So, why did the replacements stop and why are only half of B-1B's equipped? I cant find out anywhere and its not because its sensitive, Its because it was part of the DAS upgrade that got all messed up when the AF cancelled it. So, tell me about it.
