Oh, you were talking about the plane, not the method of it's transport. Sorry for the misunderstanding. It's probably some test drone. In fact it looks a lot like one of NASA's scramjet drones.

But it looks like it has a cockpit and it's pretty big (roughly, I'd guess that it's the size of a 707).

Just to correct. F117 was shot and downed not in Kosovo, Kosovo was just a lousy excuse for airstrike against Yugoslavia, But in Northern region of country, actualy less then 10 miles from where I live. I have seen that in fact.
B2 bombers were flying missions every day, even when other bombers could not be used.
I am pretty sure there were flying from US directly. Correct me if I am wrong, I want this to be confirmed.

B2 were indeed used there and they fly round trips from the US Missouri. That was the first time they were used in combat. They flew about 50 missions , less than 1% of the total. But they dropped about 11% of the bombs used in Yugoslavia, or nearly 700.

They had a B2 pilot talking about it on TV one time. He said when he got home his wife was yelling at him to cut the lawn and he was thinking that like 24 hours ago he was bombing some other country

As far as I know, the shuttle pic is a fake. If you look at the shadow underneath it, they just don't seem to match up. Not sure where I found it, but it makes for some good chatter. I still have alot of pics to scan, but I'm working on it.

Thanks for the pics. B2 is just magic

The government keeps an eye on the satellites in the sky, if they didn'd want that B2 to be seen, they could have just puled it into a hanger/had it take off for a while. I think it's because they really didn't care if someone took the picture.

FWIW

B2s at Whiteman www.whiteman.af.mil...

Also on that same pic that started this thread, scroll out and up

Any guesses as to what that is?

The aircraft that you have centered in the image would be a B-52.

Amazing how much detail you can get from that photo. When I was stationed there they had'nt completed construction on the hangars yet. There's a small road that goes from the back of the hangars which goes directly into weapons storage. That's where the MHU-204 trailers are loaded with the munitions on rotary launchers or gravity racks. Here's a pic of the munitions handling unit with rotary launcher...no weapons.


And with training rounds:

That is what I thought, but the airplane appears to have six engines located singley, three per side. A B-53 would have eight engines located in two sets of two on each wing. Also, that aircraft looks like a static display.

It's a B-52 the extra things on the wings are fuel tanks, I think.

In August 1951, Whiteman AFB returned to life again and became a part of Strategic Air Command. SAC activated the 4224th Air Base Squadron to supervise the rehabilitation and construction of a new base, Sedalia AFB. The 4224th continued its activities until Oct. 20, 1952, when it inactivated while turning over the base to the 340th Bombardment Wing. SAC scheduled the 340th to received the command's newest aircraft systems, the B-47 Stratojet (pictured above) and the KC-97 tanker. Construction workers soon completed runway repairs and other projects in November 1953, paving the way for the arrival of the first B-47 in March 1954. I believe that there is a KC-97 on static display on the base as well. Pic below...


It's more probable that it's this one........the KC-97. The B-47 is by the Personnel office off the main road across from the hangars. The KC-97 was out further past the base fishing pond towards the outer perimeter of the base.
