    A B-1B Lancer with the 28th Bomb Wing here crashed near Broadus, Mont., during a routine training mission Aug. 19.

    A crew of two pilots and two weapon systems officers were on board. All four members of the aircrew safely ejected with some injuries.

    "We are actively working to ensure the safety of the crew members and have sent first responders to secure the scene and work closely with local authorities at the crash site,” said Col. Kevin Kennedy, the 28th Bomb Wing commander. "Right now all of our thoughts and prayers are with the crews and their families,"

    Air Force officials will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the cause of the accident.
