      The Northrop Grumman B Raider is an American heavy bomber under development for the United States Air Force (USAF) by Northrop part of the Long Range Strike Bomber program (LRS-B), it is to be an advanced very long-range, large, heavy-payload stealth intercontinental strategic bomber for the USAF, able to deliver conventional and thermonuclear cturer: Northrop Grumman.   The first operational B-2 stealth bomber, tail number , was delivered to Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., on the 90th anniversary of the first manned flight by the Wright brothers. Piloted by General John Michael Loh and the th’s Lt. Col. John Bellanger, the two men flew the airplane from Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., to Whiteman.

      October - Northrop Grumman is to begin testing a single example of a modernized B-2 stealth bomber with the new Defensive Management System - Modernization (DMS-M) equipment in place. Upgrades include a new instrument panel in the cockpit, improved digital processing, new antenna fits, and a strengthened Electronic Support Measures (ESM) unit. The first B-2 rolled out of the bomber's final assembly facility in Palmdale, Calif., in November and it flew for the first time on J The first B-2 entered the Air Force's operational fleet at Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., on Dec. 17,

      It will replace the B-1 and B-2 platforms by the end of the s, with the B expected to operate past Concept art of the B stealth bomber, which is expected to be introduced to the U.   As for more facts about the B-1 bomber, let's start with the B-1A. It was developed in the s as the aircraft that would replace the B bomber. Authorities were testing four prototypes but the program was canceled in before anything could go Author: Michael Bame.

Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the status of the B-2 bomber program, focusing on the Air Force's progress in: (1) acquiring 20 operational B-2 aircraft; and (2) flight testing, production, and modification found that: (1) a recent Air Force cost estimate indicates the final cost for 20 operational aircraft will be about $28, million in fiscal year (FY) Northrop B-2 Stealth Bomber: The Complete History, Technology, and Operational Development of the Stealth Bomber (Mil-Tech Series) [Sweetman, Bill] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

And this short book (45 pages) ended on that pessimistic note.4/5(1). The B-2 Combined Test Force, Air Force Flight Test Center, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., is responsible for flight testing the engineering, manufacturing and development aircraft as they are produced.

Three of the six developmental aircraft delivered at Edwards are continuing flight testing. Whiteman AFB, Mo., is the B-2's only operational base.

The B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear munitions. Along with the B and B-1B, the B-2 provides the penetrating flexibility and effectiveness.

More specifically, the Air Force’s inventory of long-range strategic bombers, although conceived as weapons of nuclear deterrence during the Cold War, must now fit within parameters of post-Cold War air power doctrine.

In the B-2 particularly, the Air Force. The B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear munitions. A dramatic leap forward in technology, the bomber represents a major milestone in the U.S. bomber modernization program. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time, anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.
