Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber USAF Aerospace Power
Mission: The B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both
conventional and nuclear munitions. A dramatic leap forward in technology,
the bomber represents a major milestone in the U.S. bomber modernization
program. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time,
anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.
Along with the B-52, the B-2 provides the penetrating flexibility and
effectiveness inherent in manned bombers. Its low-observable, or "stealth,"
characteristics give it the unique ability to penetrate an enemy's most
sophisticated defenses and threaten its most valued, and heavily defended,
targets. Its capability to penetrate air defenses and threaten effective
retaliation provides a strong, effective deterrent and combat force well
into the 21st century.
The revolutionary blending of low-observable technologies with high
aerodynamic efficiency and large payload gives the B-2 important advantages
over existing bombers. Its low-observability provides it greater freedom of
action at high altitudes, thus increasing its range and a better field of
view for the aircraft's sensors. Its unrefueled range is approximately
6,000 nautical miles (9,600 kilometers).
The B-2's low observability is derived from a combination of reduced
infrared, acoustic, electromagnetic, visual and radar signatures. These
signatures make it difficult for the sophisticated defensive systems to
detect, track and engage the B-2. Many aspects of the low-observability
process remain classified; however, the B-2's composite materials, special
coatings and flying-wing design all contribute to its "stealthiness."
The B-2 has a crew of two pilots, a pilot in the left seat and mission
commander in the right, compared to the B-1B's crew of four and the B-52's
crew of five.
The first B-2 was publicly displayed on Nov. 22, 1988, when it was rolled
out of its hangar at Air Force Plant 42, Palmdale, Calif. Its first flight
was July 17, 1989. The B-2 Combined Test Force, Air Force Flight Test
Center, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif., is responsible for flight testing
the engineering, manufacturing and development aircraft on the B-2.
Whiteman AFB, Mo., is the only operational base for the B-2. The first
aircraft, Spirit of Missouri, was delivered Dec. 17, 1993. Depot
maintenance responsibility for the B-2 is performed by Air Force contractor
support and is managed at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center at Tinker
The combat effectiveness of the B-2 was proved in Operation Allied Force,
where it was responsible for destroying 33 percent of all Serbian targets
in the first eight weeks, by flying nonstop to Kosovo from its home base in
Missouri and back. In support of Operation Enduring Freedom, the B-2 flew
one of its longest missions to date from Whiteman to Afghanistan and back.
The B-2 completed its first-ever combat deployment in support of Operation
Iraqi Freedom, flying 22 sorties from a forward operating location as well
as 27 sorties from Whiteman AFB and releasing more than 1.5 million pounds
of munitions. The aircraft received full operational capability status in
December 2003. On Feb. 1, 2009, the Air Force's newest command, Air Force
Global Strike Command, assumed responsibility for the B-2 from Air Combat

***The Traxxas Slash is waterproof***
1) This was taken at Pipal Park in Omaha, Nebraska.
2) I am driving my Traxxas Slash VXL 4x4 1/10 scale short course truck.
3) This is a water fountain that had recently been shut off for winter. Not
a public urinal.
4) No, this is not a real truck.
5) Yes it is battery powered. At the time I was running 8.4 volt NiMh
battery but have since changed to a 7.4 volt LiPo which can be seen in my

A-10 Warthog (Thunderbolt II) bombing run
***I disabled comments because I'm sick of people telling everyone that the
explosions are rigged. We all know that they are rigged. I never implied
that they weren't rigged. The commentator at the airshow, and on the
movie's audio, says that the explosions are rigged. Comments in the video
itself say that they are rigged.
TL;DR I got tired of rampant stupidity and disabled comments.***
Low Quality Video.

it's cool none-the-less.
RARE VIDEO Russian Air Force Su-24 on bombing mission.
Russian air force bomber aircraft The Sukhoi Su-24 (NATO reporting name:
Fencer) is a supersonic, all-weather attack aircraft developed in the
Soviet Union. This variable-sweep wing, twin-engined side-by-side
two-seater carried the USSR's first integrated digital navigation/attack
system. It remains in service with former Soviet air forces and various
air forces to which it was exported.
The Su-24 has a shoulder-mounted variable geometry wing outboard of a
relatively small fixed wing glove, swept at 69°. The wing has four sweep
settings: 16° for take-off and landing, 35° and 45° for cruise at
different altitudes, and 69° for minimum aspect ratio and wing area in
low-level dashes. The variable geometry wing provides excellent STOL
performance, allowing a landing speed of 230 km/h (143 mph), even lower
than the Sukhoi Su-17 despite substantially greater take-off weight. Its
high wing loading provides a stable low-level ride and minimal gust
The Su-24 has two Saturn/Lyulka AL-21F-3A afterburning turbojet engines with 109.8 kN (24,700 lbf) thrust
each, fed with air from two rectangular side mounted intakes with splitter
In early Su-24 ("Fencer A" according to NATO) aircraft these intakes had
variable ramps, allowing a maximum speed of 2,320 km/h (1,440 mph), Mach
2.18, at altitude and a ceiling of some 17,500 m (57,400 ft). Because the
Su-24 is used almost exclusively for low-level missions, the actuators for
the variable intakes were deleted to reduce weight and maintenance. This
has no effect on low-level performance, but absolute maximum speed and
altitude are cut to Mach 1.35 and 11,000 m (36,100 ft). The earliest
Su-24 had a box-like rear fuselage, which was shortly changed in production
to a rear Exhaust shroud more closely
shaped around the engines in order to reduce drag. The revised aircraft
also gained three side-by-side antenna fairings in the nose, a repositioned
braking chute, and a new ram-air inlet at the base of the tail fin. The
revised aircraft were dubbed "Fencer-B" by NATO, but did not merit a new
The Su-24's fixed armament is a single fast-firing GSh-6-23 cannon with 500
rounds of ammunition, mounted in the fuselage underside. The gun is covered
with an eyelid shutter when not in use. The warload includes various
nuclear weapons. Two or four R-60 (NATO AA-8 'Aphid') infrared missiles are
usually carried for self-defense by the Su-24M/24MK.
Initial Su-24s had basic electronic countermeasures (ECM) equipment, with
many Su-24s limited to the old Sirena radar-warning receiver with no
integral jamming system. Later-production Su-24s had more comprehensive
radar warning, missile-launch warning, and active ECM equipment, with
triangular antennas on the sides of the intakes and the tip of the vertical
fin. This earned the NATO designation "Fencer-C", although again it did not
have a separate Soviet designation. Some "Fencer-C" and later Su-24M
("Fencer-D" by NATO) have large wing fence/pylons on the wing glove portion
with integral chaff/flare dispensers; others have such launchers scabbed
onto either side of the tail fin.
Syrian civil war
During the escalation of the Syrian Civil War, starting in November 2012,
around four months after the first air raids from different fixed wing
aircraft started, and after 18 months since the beginning, the first Su-24
medium bombers were filmed dropping their heavy payload on the rebels.
The first and to date only Su-24 loss, an upgraded MK2 version, was downed
by an Igla sufrace-to-air missile fired by the insurgency already on 28
November near the town Darat Izza in the Aleppo Governorate. One of the
pilots, Col. Ziad Daud Ali, was injured and was filmed being taken to a
rebel field hospital.
Furthermore, Syrian Fencers have reportedly been involved in
near-encounters with NATO warplanes. The first of such incidents occurred
in early September 2013, when Syrian Fencers of the 819th Squadron
(launched from Tiyas airbase) flew low over the Mediterranean and
approached the 14-mile air exclusion zone surrounding the British airbase
in Akrotiri, Cyprus. The jets turned back before reaching the area due to
two RAF Eurofighter Typhoons being scrambled to intercept them. Turkey also
sent two F-16s. The Fencers were possibly testing the air defenses of the
base (and their reaction time) in preparation for a possible military
strike by the U.S, the United Kingdom and France in the aftermath of the
chemical weapons attack in Ghouta, Damascus allegedly committed by the
Surviving Su-24M models have gone through a life-extension and updating
program, with GLONASS, upgraded cockpit with multi-function displays
(MFDs), HUD, digital moving-map generator, Shchel helmet-mounted sights,
and provision for the latest guided weapons, including R-73 (AA-11
'Archer') air-to-air missiles.
