B2 Bomber Your Favorite Aspect

Thu Mar 02, 2006 11:40 pm

My favorite aspect is the stealth by far. It can just sneak up on a target without it knowing. Like a modern day assassin cool anyone else's thoughts

Lidar in the exhaust stream to let the pilots know when they are making contrails. Once alerted, they can descend to a lower altitude to reduce/eliminate the contrails.....

Pretty slick.

The trailing edge being razor sharp. They put pads on it when it's on the ground to keep people from cutting themselves.

Gotta be the shape! The flying wing is dead sexy and it let's the uninitiated public know that there is more to airplanes than just tubes with wings.

My favourite aspect about the B-2 is that it is actually worth about twice its weight in gold. biggrin 

Correction: that it cost about twice its weight in gold. stirthepot

And has been used only twice?


My favourite is a lack of vertical stabilisers. It creates a real bat like appearance. I also like the rotary launchers in the bomb bays.
