A stealthy visitor to a not so stealthy place B-2 at KCOS

Working on an Air Force base does have its perks. You never know what may pop in or divert. Today we have an early morning visitor come by thats not too common. A B-2 was in route to an unkown location when it called a divert to KCOS. I was able to break away on my lunch break a get a photo of this illusive aircraft. Enjoy! 20181024_111547

Serious question - This is allowed? Wouldn’t OPSEC come into play?

Well just look at it, the B2 Spirit is an amazing airplane, and is extremely unique considering it’s lack of a vertical stabilizer. Great catch. 👏👏

My grandmother works on Peterson AFB and I’m hoping that she got a picture so I can see it. I doubt it, but we’ll see.
Nice shot regardless! :)

Is it related to this incident?

It says it’s on it’s way to Whiteman Air Force Base in Knob Noster, Missouri

Ps. I can bump that dent out on the car there … looks bad @Asneed8706

That’s the exact incident. :)

Belive so, local and national media jumped on the story. It’s hard to keep somthing like this under wraps very long especially without a hanger. I know NEWS 13 KRDO Colo Springs was out here first thing on the commercial side which is a direct view to Pete
