Watch out for knocks on the door in the middle of the night.

I'm pretty sure you still need a TS clearance and the need to know to even get in the cockpit of a B-2.

A week or two after I was told I could see anywhere on the plane, but the cockpit and exhaust, there was a Popular Mechanics two page full color spread of a B-2 cockpit with power on and all the displays lit up. They had taken a reporter on a training flight with them, and even let him fly it for a few minutes.

That gives me vertigo just looking at all that. Knowing my clumsy self, I'd hit the wrong button with an elbow.

"Oops..."

"What do you mean oops?!"

"I think I just dropped a bomb on a WalMart by accident. Uh, my bad?"

Does that thing have A/C and a killer stereo with some kickin' bass? How about heated, massaging seats for long-haul flights? I know even on a 737 my butt gets tired after 4-5 hours.

Walmart? Lol, it wouldn't have been an accident in my case.

That brings up something funny. When they were training for the first long range strike missions from Whiteman to Iraq and Afghanistan, the biggest problem was crew fatigue (they were something like 40 hours round trip). They were simulating the missions, in real time, when one of the pilots came up with a simple solution.

He went to the local Walmart, and bought a chaise lounge, and installed it in the back of the cockpit. One crew member monitors the aircraft and radios, while the other sleeps on the chair. Then they swap. Problem solved.

Be supersonic/hypersonic will solve the crew fatigue no need to sleep ( SR-72 the solution)

Don't know about that but I do know that they flew with three crew members on those long trips. Rotating every 8 hours.

Sometimes It's the simplest solutions that work out the best!

I'd still want to install a 12" with a a good component system. I'd have to have my Kenny Loggins playing as I took off in one of those bad boys.

It actually started in Yugoslavia. I thought it was Iraq, but it was earlier than that.


After he paid all his bills, answered all his mail, said all his goodbyes, Single added one more task to his preflight list: He stopped at the nearest Wal-Mart and bought a blue vinyl chaise longue. The cashier gave him a receipt for $ 8.88.



When people think about war, they rarely think about sleep. But Single's $ 8.88 special quickly became the most popular accessory on the $ 2.2 billion B-2 bomber. A week into the air campaign in Yugoslavia, Maj. Bob Duncan, 37, strolled the locker room of the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman and noticed, among the standard-issue olive-green flight jackets, gray helmets and oxygen masks and black visors, that each one of the doorless lockers also had a flimsy chaise longue.

Knowing me, if I stopped at WalMart, I'd probably end up dragging a psychedelic colored bean bag chair on board and exclaim, "DUDES! How cool is this awesome road trip to Yugoslavia going to be! Check this thing out!"

*sigh* this is probably why I shouldn't be in the military.

I figures there were more buttons and wiz bang stuff in the over head panels that they don't show in any of the pics I've seen. A lot of it the pilots probably have to cycle through some screens to get to the control interfaces.

It reminds me of the cockpit of the Space Shuttle, sort of.

If you know you know and you can allude but not tell. I did that here in a past response. Most technology in the aviation industry is in the white world in a scientific paper form. Even the top secret stuff. If you don't want to spend time in the library than go spend time in the library.

I inquired about the B2 cockpit long ago. The cockpit has been declassified. I don't blame the government for not showing the "launchpad" if they are not doing so. What I want to see if construction photos!! Those are TOP SECRET!

What new tech will be seen on the LRS-B. Titanium integration into composite materias along with using electric fields to achieve better stealth characteristics possibly. This comes from papers I have been reading in the library.

Still waiting for a reponse on the picture I posted in my last thread.

Meta material skins perhaps, Phantom Works was given a grant a while back (about 200mil) to produce a metamaterial skin but this has since disappeared from the net.

There's quite a bit of interesting tech that's going to be in this beast. Lots of photoshopping gonna happen when it does come out.
