The host unit at Dyess is the 7th Bomb Wing assigned to the Air Combat Command Twelfth Air Force. The 7 BW is one of only two B-1B Lancer strategic bomber wings in the United States Air Force, the other being the 28th Bomb Wing at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota.
Dyess AFB was chosen to receive the Air Force's first operational B-1B's in 1983 and in June 1985 received its first B-1B Lancer replacing the B-52 Stratofortress and in October 1986, assumed nuclear alert status. In June 1992, as part of the first major reorganization since the creation of the USAF, the Air Force inactivated the Strategic Air Command and assigned Dyess's organizations to the newly activated Air Combat Command. The 7th's mission changed from that of strategic bombardment to one of worldwide conventional munitions delivery.
Since then Dyess has been recognized as the premier bomber training center. Dyess is also home to the 317th Airlift Group of the Air Mobility Command. The 317 AG is the largest C-130J Hercules unit in the world.

About Team SDB
Team SDB, a joint effort from developers based in the UK and USA but primarily consisting of Mike Dews in the UK and Frank Safranek in the USA have been developing flight simulator scenery add-ons for over a decade. Originally beginning with work published by Alphasim (Phil Perrott) also known for Virtavia, they now release independantly.
Team SDB generally focus on UK/US airfields, airbases and military precenses and bring them to life as scenery add-ons in the simulators. They have released many titles that have been well received by the community compatible with a range of simulators such FS2004, FSX and Prepar3D. They also have other projects releases such as aircraft carrier add-ons compatible with the latest sims.
Team SDB also hope to remaster and release their scenery add-on portfolio for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS) 2020 release.
Rated 3.5/5.0 based on 2 customer reviews
I am not impressed with this scenery. I have several other SDB downloads but this one doesn't seem to work right. It has B1s asking for taxi clearance, getting it, and then taxing in the wrong direction away from the active runway out into the dessert? Any suggestions? I have Ellisworth, could this interfere with this sim? Anybody else experiencing the same? I was really looking forward to this scenery. Very disappointed.
