A lot of the B-2 is actually Boeing made.

Yes, 21 were built. But as you saw in the video, we lost one in 2008.

There were supposed to be well over 100 of them. But right after they rolled out the jet, the Soviet Union collapsed. With the cold war being over, there was no longer a need for such a massive strategic bomber force. And these things are very expensive.

Ahh I see, so they use B-52's and B-1B's more I'd guess eh?

Yes, our job is to kick the door down. Take down the IADs, then get back home and get back to flying Air Shows. ;)

Thanks for your service and congratulations on a great shot. I really like the "Heritage Flight" shots but I haven't seen any with the B2! Great timing, contrast and overall composition. Even the sky was working for you! Definitely a shot to be proud of.
