Thanks, I see it now. Yes, it sure looks like another large hanger going in.

This hanger may be to house a number of LSR-B's. It should have the volume for it.

Too small. It'll be used for something unmanned or an F-117 replacement..

The LRS-B [or variant] has flown out of the large hangar already existing at the south end of the base... And I believe the 'SR-72' is housed in the double-ended long hangar in the center of the base, between the hangars and the runways.

You aren't referring to Machrihanish are you? That airport was sold to a private group that was to develop it for the local community back in 2012. So I assume a different airbase?

A buddy of mine at Edwards has confirmed that the northrop lrs-b demonstrator has been grounded for the time being pending an investigation into something. He couldn't say. On another note, and one that was also backed up by my boom buddy, is the LM bird has been flying from groom to a base in Scotland several times now.

Perhaps this LRS-B is a dual country effort with the UK to split the cost or something???

"" William LaPlante, assistant Air Force secretary for acquisition, said the request for proposals for the long-range strike bomber will come in a matter of days. (Staff Sgt. Carlin Lesl / Air Force)""
Soon some news about the new bomber
And 2015 for the choice of the company not so long

If I was to scry really hard into my crystal ball, My $50 bet would then fall upon the following.

Lockheed Martin / Boeing team to cream it for the win.

Twin power plant effort, slightly smaller at two thirds a B-2B bomber, but with massively improved aggressive signature management that will take it across the winning line.

Inlets will make people look at it and go 'WTF is that?!?', exhausts, ditto. A whole heap of the X-36 / BOP work will go into the design, reducing and /or near eliminating moving surfaces in a combat environment.

Lockheed will stump up the EODAS and F-35 style skins.

Smaller, stealthier, and comes in on costs or just under for a massive buy by the USAF.

Considering NG's bird is grounded for some reason and the LM/Boeing bird is test flying at the moment I'll agree to that. Lol

They ran into a failure that led to a real changing the flightsuit and underwear moment.

From what I heard it's a problem they ran into before and thought they fixed, but it didn't work out that way.

Not sure exactly what it was though. Just that it scared the hell out of them.

Asymmetric issues on a platform such as that can be somewhat....entertaining....
