The TOP TEN Most Incredible Facts About the B-2 Spirit

Simon Rogan (contributor), 02/24/2019

Spirit of the TOP TEN  

10. There are no operational B-2s on display. All aircraft are either in use or destroyed.

9. Two B-2s flew over 13,000 miles round trip from Missouri to South Korea in March of 2013 as a part of the annual United States – South Korea exercises. This was the first time a B-2 went over the Korean Peninsula.

8. The B-2 has a maximum speed of 630 mph – about 140 miles an hour shy of Mach 1. With a takeoff load of 336,500 pounds, that’s impressive!

7. There has been an out-of-court settlement between the U.S. government and Northrop Grumman regarding allegations of fraud and/or overcharging.

6. In 1988 the B-2 was unveiled at Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California. Spectators weren’t allowed to get closer than 200 feet and no one was allowed to see the rear of the aircraft.

5. Northrop wasn’t alone in building the B-2. In 1991, the B-2 project employed more Boeing employees than anything Boeing was building themselves.

4. The B-21 Raider is being developed behind closed doors as we speak. The earliest estimations have the B-21 taking over for the B-2 as the United States’ predominant stealth-bomber by 2030.

3. The B-2 Spirit costs roughly three times its weight in gold.

2. The Department of Defense authorized Northrop Grumman to upgrade the B-2 Spirit to Extremely High Frequency (EHF) Satellite Communications. This is extremely rarefied air compared to the conventional UHF and VHF frequencies.

1. The B-2 Spirit has an internal navigation system that relies on stars rather than GPS Satellites. The astro-inertial navigation can not be jammed electronically and maintains the aircraft’s low radar profile.
