Interesting then that the blackjack got close without being detected, maybe also result of passive stealth. Either way not too bad for such an old cold war era plane!
Well, it IS still currently the most advanced bomber in the world. We all know how useless F-117s are. We could only surmise how the B2 would fail miserably against Russian defences.

What would be funny is if the British had an automated land to air missle defense that detected it and launched then blew it out of the sky. Now that would be an international incident and funny as heck.

F-117s are slower but hardly uselsss, B-2s are not even in the same class as a BlackJack, a BlackJack is a lot more like the revised American B-1. Considering most of the B-2 is top secret, I doubt anyone could say for sure that it would "fail miserably"
