Satellite Image Shows B-2 Moved To Hangar After Skidding Off Runway

As we have reported earlier, a U.S. Air ForceF Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit bomber sustained minor damage during an emergency landing at Whiteman Air Force Base. The damaged bomber has finally been moved off the grass and into a hangar.

The stealth bomber had come to a rest on its wing following an apparent main landing gear collapsed after experiencing a major malfunction in flight.

A temporary flight restriction was put into place around the B-2’s home base as recovery and investigative efforts following the mishap commenced.

Satellite imagery taken yesterday at around noon shows the damaged B-2 had been moved back onto the runway from where it had been resting adjacent to it.

We still don’t know just how badly damaged the B-2 involved is, but the fact that there was no fire and everyone walked away unscathed is a positive sign. 

There are just 20 of these aircraft in existence out of 21 ever produced. One was lost on departure from Guam in 2008.
