x2 B-2A (MYTEE51 & 52) recover into RAF Fairford 9th July 2017

It was a busy day for bombers on June 9th at RAF Fairford, and was the first time I’d seen (and filmed) all three of Global Strike Command’s heavy bombers on the same day.

These two aircraft were flown from Whiteman AFB, Missouri, visited a bombing range in the UK before recovering into Fairford. These aircraft were 82-1068 Spirit Of New York (MYTEE51) and 88-0329 Spirit Of Missouri (MYTEE52).

The famed B-2 Spirit ‘Stealth Bomber’ entered service in 1997 and they still look absolutely cutting edge to my eyes, despite the fact that they celebrate 20 years in service this year. Happy birthday B-2.

Sabre Strike B-2s into RAF Fairford – 8th June 2015

Two B-2 Spirit Stealth Bombers arrive at RAF Fairford (UK) for a hot pit turn around back to the USA. A stunning sight in the low evening sunlight in rural Gloucestershire.

These two aircraft had callsigns PANTS11 and PANTS12.

Lovely to meet a few people out and about today, and thanks to all the community for the streams of information. Top stuff!
