The Long Range Strike-Bomber program has escaped sequestration cuts as the U.S. Air Force designated the program as a high priority. "As we looked at the sequestration impacts to the very early phases of the Long Range Strike-Bomber, the team was able to handle that 9% or so cut within its development by kind of working around certain issues and being able to structure the programme just a little differently," said Lt. Gen. Charles Davis.
