B-2 Spirit Bomber Burned After Landing Emergency In the Air Force Base Whiteman

International Military - A stealth bomber (bomber) with a nuclear capability of the United States Air Force B -2 Spirit (USAF) landed emergency and then caught fire. This incident occurred at the Whiteman Air Force (AFB) Base in Missouri on Saturday (12/10/2022) last week, but only confirmed the USAF a day later.

Whiteman base functions as the main base of the fleet which consists of only 20 B-2 spirit units which are currently operating. The fire occurred shortly after the emergency landing. However, the damage experienced by the aircraft is still unclear. The cause of the accident is unknown.

A spokesman for Pangkalan Whiteman confirmed that the fire department extinguished the flames in the stealth bomber. "B-2 Spirit of the US Air Force suffered damage to flight during routine operations today and damaged on the runway at the Whiteman Air Force Base after completing the emergency landing," said the 509th Bomb Bombing Public Affairs Office, as quoted by the Eurasian Times on Monday (Monday ( 12/12/2022).

Whiteman Airbase base recently released a video showing the readiness of the B-2 Spririt bomber fleet. A few weeks ago, Usaf also published a photo of the "Gajah Street" formation that had never happened before from eight B-2 Spririt who slid on the runway. This latest incident is similar to the B-2 emergency landing that occurred in the same base in September 2021.

B-2 involved in the incident was his left wing fell to the ground after slipping from the foundation when making an emergency landing. After last year's incident, the B-2 fleet was caged for one year at Pangkalan Whiteman, patched and flown to Plant 42 in Palmdale, California, for significant improvement.

According to the investigation report, the 2021 accident was caused by "initial tooth decay" caused by an old spring. The 509 and 131st bomb wings operate the B-2 Spirit at Pangkalan Whiteman, Missouri, 45 miles east of Kansas City.

US Air Force (USAF) currently has 20 B-2 units after losing one in an accident at the Andersen Air Force Base in Guam in 2008. With such a small fleet and only a little more than half of them are fully operating at a certain time, severe damage to B-2 is a significant surprise for the service. Usaf had previously gone further to recover the expensive bomber when it was badly damaged.

B-2 Spirit is a multi-role bomber carrying conventional and nuclear weapons. This aircraft is a significant technological leap in the United States Bombing Modernization program.

B-2 can provide a big shooting capacity in a short time anywhere in the world. B-2 offers flexibility and effectiveness of penetration in manned bomber. It has an extraordinary capacity to penetrate the most sophisticated enemy defense and threatens his most valuable and well protected targets thanks to its unlikely detected features or known as "stealth".

This aircraft also offers strong and effective combat prevention and strength. On November 22, 1988, the first B-2 was released from its hangar at the Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale, California, and was displayed in public. The aircraft made its first flight on July 17, 1989.

Demon bomber has played an important role in representing the air power of the United States and is often deployed to other friendly countries. Previously, the US had sent four B-2 bombers from the 509th Bomb Wing of the Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri to Australia to support the Pacific Air Force bomber task force. The second wave of B-2 landed on Amberly on July 12, after the first two B-2 aircraft landed there on July 10.

It should be noted that the B-2 has been placed at the Pacific base to deal with the possibility of the threat of North Korea and dispel the resurrection of China. In addition to the B-2 pengom aircraft, it has also been reported that the US intends to place six B-52 bomber capable nuclear in Northern Australia. Usaf believes that the ability of the B-52 bomber to carry nuclear weapons from long-distance attacks and conventional weapons will show the projection of the deadly power of America to the enemy.

Responding to this deployment, China has urged the US and its allies to release their "Cold War Zero-Sum Mentality and their narrow geopolitical mindset" and do more to promote peace, stability, and mutual trust in the region between all parties.

China analysts say that the aim of America to send B-2 and B-52 bomber to Australia is to build a new fortress. If necessary, US jet can depart from Australia, join a bomber in Guam, and then enter East Asia from various directions, get extra flexibility.
