Stealth Bomber at Joint Base Lewis McChord Air Expo 2012
Jul 25, 2012

The Stealth Bomber made a couple of passes at the McChord Air Expo on Saturday. It is a singularly unique aircraft in many respects.

Northrop B-2A Spirit
s/n: 82-1070
c/n: 1005
AV-5
First flight: 5th October 1992.

Fire and Ice later renamed Spirit of Ohio . This airframe was used for extreme hot and cold temperature testing. It is one of the first six airframes, and these six were used as test aircraft. This one was used for armament, climatic, and low-observability testing.

I used the K-5 and DA* 60-250mm. I'm a bit uncertain about the third image - I think I could've done a bit better in PP, but I like how the other two show different lighting even though they were about 1s apart.
