The most expensive plane in aviation history - hardly noticeable (almost invisible, yeah) B2 bomber was first presented to the public in 1988 after nearly a decade of research and spent 23 billion dollars.
B2 is built on the principle of a flying wing with stealth technology. I have these terrible words at once frightened and begin to understand nothing. Therefore, to write about it will not, because without me there are enough specialists who will be able to talk about this plane and show pictures and inserting phrases that I understand.

2. See the B2 at an airshow in Feyrforde could only on static display, and from behind the fence at a distance of about 10 meters.

18. This instance of "Spirit of New York" with tail number 1068 had adopted in 1997. By the way, all aircraft are the name of any US state, "The Spirit of a certain state" and only one is called the "Spirit of Kitty Hawk" in honor of the Wright brothers' homeland - North Carolina.
