AFCEC leads beddown efforts for B-21 Raider Stealth Bomber

The B-21 will incrementally replace the B-1 Lancer and B-2 Spirit to perform both conventional and nuclear missions alongside the B-52 Stratofortress. As the Air Force transitions to a two-bomber fleet, the strategy to beddown the new bomber has been to minimize operational impacts, maximize reuse of existing facilities and reduce overhead as much as possible.

The Air Force Civil Engineer Center is leading a $1 billion construction effort at Ellsworth AFB to deliver sustainable infrastructure to meet warfighter demands for bomber airpower.
