My first B-2 sighting was somewhat cool, driving west on I-70 in the early evening, just north of Knob Noster (Whiteman), summer of '95. One flew
over the highway in front of us while banking, struck me that it looked like an angelfish, then another followed behind it, each were maybe 10,000
AGL, max. They just circled over the highway.
I'm fortunate to live within 100 miles of the base so I see them several times a year flying over, always very random glance at the sky and you see
one. Also get football game flyovers (the altitude of these has increased over the years, I think). The first time they did a football flyover they
must have arrived a bit early, we watched it loiter, south of the city, from the top of the football stadium - very cool.
The last time I saw a B-2 was Monday evening. We get some good sunsets so I went into the backyard and saw three contrails to the WSW, looked like
April 9, 2014 Amarillo photos (not the March ones, darn it!). I had the pleasure of watching three of these craft for an hour and twenty minutes as
they did four large ovals in the sky. Actually on the 3rd pass the back one turned early and heady back towards Whiteman I would assume, it was
getting dark by the 4th pass but the back one turned early on that one as well. Spacing return time to base?
The few things that struck me: The shiny glare off of them as they approached the first time, at least through my binoculars, certainly a reflection
off the underside which was odd. The fact that they were dragging contrails all over the place; they were below all the commercial traffic, so just
assume this may be standard to get a quick training in and hours for the pilots? The dim flicker of the nav lights which could only be seen from the
