I love aircraft.
These machines are sleek, powerful with millions of part working together to ensure a smooth flight.
Aircraft engineering and aerodynamics that get these huge things to the air are simply amazing.
Here, let's consider one of the most intimidating-yet-aesthetic looking aircraft:
The B 2 Stealth Bomber.
Aside from it's stealth other reasons why it’s one of the most intimidating aircrafts include:
1. The B-2 has a reported range of 6,000 nautical miles, and refuels approximately every six hours.
2. Because of its inherent instability, the B-2 has a quadruple fly-by-wire flight control system, meaning computer automated flight, amazing, right?
3. The B-2 uses split brake-rudders and differential thrust to maneuver, keeping it's radar cross-section low, even when the aircraft is maneuvering.
4. And it's engines are buried in the wing, concealing fan blades from radar and minimizing the engine's heat signature from infrared tracking systems. Wow! That's true stealth.
It's acknowledged to be, arguably, the best stealth bomber in the world, and it will continue to be seen (or not) in the skies for decades to come.
This is truly a technology marvel
