Great story on this jet's delivery. Capt (then) "Tool" Anderson and I basically travelled cross country from Plattsburgh AFB to DM on HF radio only, talking to MacDill and Offutt comm stations. Crossing the pond was fine. Leaving Plattsburgh, single-ship due to wingman mx issues, we took off, made one radio call to Departure and went NORDO on the UHF. HF contact with MacDill led to clearance all the way to McConnell without talking to any ATC directly. Landed at McConnell with a green light from the tower. B-1 mx, with former FB-111 experience, fixes the radio and ground tests it fine. So we press to DM, and guess what, talked to Departure and went NORDO. Offutt carried us to the green light at the DM tower. We landed and handed the jet over to DM, never once talking to ATC along the way. Wonder if that radio made it back to the line???
