The Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit (also known as the Stealth Bomber) is an American strategic bomber, featuring low observable stealth technology designed for penetrating dense anti-aircraft defenses; it is able to deploy both conventional and nuclear weapons. The bomber has a crew of two and can drop up to eighty 500 lb (230 kg)-class JDAM GPS-guided bombs, or sixteen 2,400 lb (1,100 kg) B83 nuclear bombs. The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air-to-surface standoff weapons in a stealth configuration. (From Wikipedia)

this angle of yours really does show the sleek and slender side of the stealthy airplane.
what an amazing piece of machinery.
great lighting too, as the sun is glancing off the shell like radar :)

Almost not visible...
Great timing when taken this impressive jet-picture, perfectly thin profile collected.
An unbelievable stealth, looks more like a shark rather than an airplane.
Enjoy a nice wekend,

This stealth creature looks like a UFO or fly saucer from this angular approach and the timing is just precise so well razor sharp againt the background. Base on the camera exif data we can only imagine the speed of this sleek beauty. Superb shot again.
I happaned to meet some Hmongs family in Ban Pasak village Luang Namphta Northern Laos in Jan 2007 and I learned that almost every household in their village has a family connection in US. They are famous to have helped CIA to fight the Vietcong during Vietnam war and the Pathet Lao communist army in Laos. About 15,000 Hmongs were killed during these fights in the late 1960's and a lot more were slaughtered in retaliation afterwards. Tx for your interest.

This doesn't look from this planet! A super shot of this stealth bomber well shown on the diagonal. It has picked some nice light. Very well done and TFS.
Kind Regards, Ann
