A pair of Air Force Northrop Grumman B-2A Spirit bombers conduct aerial operations over the North Sea on March 12, 2020, revealing their unique silhouette. Next to our beloved A-10 Thunderbolt II (Warthog) tank buster jet, we find the B-2’s shape the second most fascinating military aircraft in the Air Force fleet.

Assigned to the 509th Bomb Wing and the Missouri Air National Guard 131st Bomb Wing, these boomerang-shaped aircraft were conducting aerial operations in support of Bomber Task Force Europe 20-2. The bombers, deployed from their home at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to Europe in early March, according to Air Force magazine.

The photo below gives a side-view of the low observable, stealth bomber accompanied by Air Force F-15C Eagles from the 48th Fighter Wing two days later over Keflavik, Iceland. The B-2s also flew with Dutch and Norwegian F-35 Joint Strike Fighters during the exercise.
