R.Dorr - B-2 Spirit. Stealth Bomber at a Crossroads /Military/
Early morning servicing under way at Whiteman AFB.
A B-2 pilot walks to his aircraft during an engine-running crew swap at Andersen AFB, Guam. In August the USAF deployed three Spirits there.
Sending three B-2 Spirit bombers to Red Flag 14-1 represented a higher percentage of a frontline force committed to the exercise than any other major US combat aircraft.
The USAF has recently deployed B-2s to increase the type’s visibility overseas. Here Spirit ot Indiana is pictured taxying at RAF Fairford in June 2014.
The B-2 Spirit remains distinctive after 20 years in service.
