    Two B-1B Bombers Scheduled To Depart LB Airport (LOUD!) Today Jan 5 At About 2 p.m.; See Pix of Jan 4 Take-Off For Rose Bowl Flyover

    (Jan. 5, 2006) -- Two U.S. Air Force Boeing B-1B bombers, which arrived at LB Airport on Jan. 3 for a Jan. 4 Rose Bowl flyover, are scheduled to depart today (Jan. 5) for their home base at Dyess AFB at about 2:00 p.m...and yes, it will be loud.

    Retired LB Firefighter Jerry Search snapped the digital photo below of one of the B-1Bs taking-off on Jan. 4 with afterburners blazing. His suggested title: "Where the noise comes from."

    Photo credit: LB Firefighter (retired) Jerry Search reader Scott Robertson graciously emailed the photo below, titled as follows:

    "Here is a digital picture of a protector of freedom. I watched - and heard!! - it take off from the north end of the runway at Long Beach Airport on January 4, 2006, at 1555 hrs [3:55 p.m.] along with about one hundred other patriots. The afterburners were in full bloom and the earth shook as it passed."
