 At the recent Joint Base Lewis-McChord Air Expo, there was a B-1B on display and also one that did a short demonstration.  These bad boys carry the rotary launch system and have swing wings.  This is as close as I have ever come to a B-1.  I actually touched it.

 Here you can see how the wing fold into the fuselage.

 Here you can see the rotary launcher.

 and here you can see the countermeasures.  Those lumps on the tail shoot flares and chaff.
I have more photos that I will likely be posting here.
