The B-2 Stealth Bomber is one of the latest in a long list of strategic bombers that have flown for the U.S. Air Force’s Strategic Air Command. With the Aging B-52 fleet, relatively small numbers of B-1 Airplanes, and new technology – such as stealth proving itself in Operation Desert Storm – the B-2 is important to the defense mix.
Much of the B-2 technical story is classified. It is a highly important program and one, which we will hear more and more about as time moves on. The airplane is beautiful in flight. Its sleek shape and surface is covered with a menacing gray paint scheme. It is truly revolutionary.
