Washington Week: Senate advances defense plan; Harjo named poet laureate

A mostly natural metal Boeing B-1B Lancer is shown moments after the main landing gear tires have touched the runway at the end of a post-maintenance check-flight with the 10th Flight Test Squadron, Air Force Reserve Command, June 20, 2017, Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. The large building behind the B-1B is building 3001, a former Douglas Aircraft manufacturing plant during World War II, now used by the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex and its parent organization the Air Force Sustainment Center. The B-1B is being flown by a highly-experienced crew from the 10th FLTS to ensure the aircraft and systems are fully functional following depot level maintenance conducted at the OC-ALC. Once the aircraft passes all checks it will be painted and then re-delivered for front-line service. (U.S. Air Force photo/Greg L. Davis)
