Never before seen High Definition air-to-air footage of a USAF B-2 stealth bomber

Northrop Grumman has just released some really stunning HD air-to-air footage of the U.S. B-2 Spirit stealth bomber.

With the Pentagon days away from awarding the LRS-B (Long Range Strike Bomber) contract to either Lockheed Martin-Boeing team or Northrop Grumman, the latter company, builder of the B-2 Spirit, has released never before seen High Definition air-to-air footage of a USAF B-2 stealth bomber.

The U.S. Air Force is expected to operate 80-100 LRS-B next generation bombers to replace its aging B-52 and B-1 bombers.

H/T @guidoolimpio for the heads-up

  1. 360p is not what I call High Definition, but the footage is really interesting indeed ! Such a sexy plane, such pure shapes.

    • 360p is the default stream resolution, but 1080p is indeed available for this video.
      You just need to select the desired resolution/quality by hitting the “parameters” icon on the lower right of the video player.

      • Thanks for the tip, yet I knew it already so I tried it before I posted. Unfortunately 1080p doesn’t show on the player, all I get is “auto” or “360p”. Too bad ^^

  2. HD is available but you need to select/activate it. See my other comment above in response to Yak’s post.
