Upgraded B-2 Set for Delivery
Northrop Grumman Corp. announced last week that it was set to deliver the first operational U.S. B-2 bomber equipped with a new type of exterior coating, Aerospace Daily and Defense Report reported (see GSN, March 9).
Covered with an alternate high-frequency material (AHFM) to improve its stealth and radar technology, the aircraft is expected to be delivered to Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., in about a week, according to company officials.
The remaining 19 B-2s in the Air Force fleet are expected to receive the coating over the next seven years (Marc Selinger, Aerospace Daily and Defense Report/Aviation Now, Aug. 16).
