Is That? Could it be?
It is! A B2 bomber.
It flew right over us, still pretty low. I have no idea where it was heading but a practice bomb run is a distinct possibility as I know there are ranges in the area. Ed might have a better idea where it was going. These shots were taken just a few miles north of Nellis.
I'd never seen one in person before. The DO and the kids were in the truck with us and I just pulled over, grabbed the camera and took these shots before it disappeared. It was awesome. It was eerily quiet, nothing like the fighters which you can often hear long before you can see them, especially when they're flying low, as they often do in the neighborhood of Nellis.
Have I said how much this old ground pounder loves the Air Force? I have nothing but respect, admiration and awe for those who can pilot such craft.
