Long time lurker, first time aviation forum poster:
I find the circumstances around the Amarillo sighting almost as interesting as the plane itself. Assuming it was a "sanctioned" tip that led to the
photographs, what/who might the little unveiling have been directed towards, speculative speaking? Russia? Then why stage the B-2 formation (I've
heard that they almost never fly in formation anyway) a few days later?
Secondarily, outside of Diego Garcia and England, aren't all B-2s based out of Whiteman? Under such circumstances, I can't imagine that the mystery
bird took off in daylight from Missouri - The B-2s would have had to rendezvous with it in another spot (presumably the desert southwest), escort it
on its tour and then escort it back before returning to Whiteman I assume.
Sorry for the thread drift, but the mention of the Amarillo sighting rekindled my curiosity about the potential reasons behind the photos and the
logistics of the flight as far as they can be known. Fun to speculate though...
