Dyess AFB likely to get futuristic B-21 Raider in less than a decade

Posted: Updated:

Supporters of Dyess Ar Force Base near Abilene are lobbying hard to secure its future.

It's likely to get futuristic bombers in less than a decade. The B-21 Raider is predicted to replace the B-1B Lancers in the Air Force's bomber arsenal.

Lubbock Congressman Jodey Arrington calls this a "West Texas-sized step" and says securing that bomber is absolutely essential. He calls it "a generational opportunity for West Texas" and says he won't stop pressuring the Air Force until the secretary signs on "the dotted line."
