April 24, 2008
Most of the Air Force’s B-2s are flying again, following a 53-day “safety pause” for the aircraft following the first-ever crash of a stealth bomber Feb. 23 on Guam, according to an Air Force news release.
A B-2 Spirit was launched April 15 from its home base of Whiteman Air Force Base, Mont., the release stated. About 20 bomber flights have been flown in the past week, according to a story in Monday’s Kansas City Star.
