Johnson Weighs in on B1 Crash
Today's B-1 crash in Southeastern Montana comes against a backdrop of increasing budget pressures in Washington D.C...and the sequester spending cuts, which until only recently had impacted B-1 crews ability to get enough training hours in the air.
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson about the sequester...and it's possible impact on the flight readiness and safety of Ellsworth crews.
While it's too early to speculate about the sequestration's contribution to the event, Senator Johnson says he will be very interested to know what if any impact those spending cuts might have had.
