Click-grasping headline. It makes it sound like the *last* B-1B has been retired. The last of *this batch* of retirees is being retired. Other B-1Bs will continue to fly until 2036. I think they've retired 17 of 62, so 45 remain in service.

Yes, you are correct … The remaining B-1s will still be flying until 2036. It is like the B-52 is too "good" an aircraft to do what it is tasked to do. Unless the current "paradigm" changes greatly.
