I give it 5 Stars for being truly unique. Capturing a very rarely seen aircraft in a setting such as the Rose Bowl game on New Year's Day 2009 deserves a lot of credit.

How can you *not* rate this 5 stars? So many details! I love how the stadium is so split between the two teams playing. So much detail, and I bet half the crowd didnt even know the Spirit was over their heads! Amazing!

I think the photographer might have been in that Goodyear blimp that's been flying over the game all day long!

A little googling shows that this is the "Spirit of Missouri" (88-0329). The "Spirit of Pennsylvania" flew over the parade.

To those who are wondering how this photo was taken.. This photo was recently featured in SI magazine and was taken from a Cessna (Sam Chui would be proud) looking down at the B-2 as it flew over the stadium. Incredible shot

If I am not mistaken, this is the same shot which appears in the January 12 issue of Sports Illustrated. The photographer was in a Cessna at 4500 feet.

That is just sweet :D My only question is how you got that pic knowing that when the B-2 flies they divert every commercial aircraft for approx 100 miles (I discovered this shortly after 9/11/01). Sufice to say I am very impressed.

Not too often do you get to see a B2 from above! I can also say that the data on the B2 is inaccurate; we were over flown by one (opposite direction) by 1000 feet just last week over MCI in an ERJ.

Amazing shot but I really want to know how he was allowed to be in a Cessna over the stadium when the B-2 flew over. I live in Daytona Beach and frequently go out to watch the flyovers of the racetrack. Every time, even if its just fighters, the tower moves EVERYTHING out of the area for miles. The blimp, the video helo's, everything. So how was this Cessna allowed to be show center with an asset like the B-2 coming in? But I love it!
