CNN confims it. B-1B down approx. 40 miles north of Diego Garcia. Word now is all four members of the crew have been rescued and are aboard a USN vessel.

Crew reportedly radioed that the aircraft reportedly had engine problems. Were 30-40 miles North-West of Diego Garcia. All four have been rescued and are in good condition. God Bless them.

Crew is safe. First B-1B crash in a combat mission since it's operational. It's on Yahoo!
