This is crazy watching the incident happen. The video shows the first B-2 bomber lift off. Then, at 1:50, you see the second B-2 bomber which is the one that crashes. Intense. Poof! There goes a $1 billion.

I remember within a month seperate from this incident an A-7 Intruder and a B-1 Lancer also crashed at Guam. It made me ask, "What is going on there?!"

Enjoy the video.

In February, a B-2 stealth bomber crashed in Guam. Now we know why. And we've got video of the scene.

On takeoff from Andersen Air Force Base, the $1.4 billion plane abruptly "pitched up, rolled and yawed to the left before plunging to the ground," the AP describes. The reason why: "Water distorted preflight readings in three of the plane's 24 sensors, making the aircraft's control computer force the B-2 to pitch up on takeoff, resulting in a stall and subsequent crash." Luckily, "both pilots ejected safely just after the left wing made contact with the ground in the first crash since the maiden B-2 flights nearly 20 years ago." Check out the video, and you'll see just how fortunate the pilots were to make it out.

Oh my ......


Looks like he tried a bit too much rotation and the B-2 just said 'nope, not today jet jocky'.

An amazing video, thank you very much for the link !

That's great footage


I'm glad the pilots made it out alive. It was clearly a last second decision to eject.

Thank you for sharing this
