    A shot of the Northrop Grumman B2 Spirit during its suprise visit to RIAT 2017 yesterday, apparently flew all the way from Whiteman AFB, Missouri she did 2 passes then flew back to Whiteman.

    Amazing.

    If you didn't know it was a real aircraft, no-one would believe you!

    This. I've looked at pictures and videos of this since I was a kid and have also been fortunate enough to see them directly over our house going into Fairford on operations in the past, but seeing it cruise past right in front of us yesterday was truly surreal, even more so with the conventional F-15s flanking it. It still looks like the most futuristic thing ever, despite now being 30 years old.

    Lovely shot - you did much better than me - the clouds at the show yesterday were a real killer.
    I was at a park and ride, so as the B2 banked on both passes round the runway, all I got was the underside.... twice :D lol

    Wow, I wonder if that's what I saw in the distance on Saturday ? Saw something a way off, but the weather was poor and then it disappeared and never saw anything more of it again, but having seen this now, pretty sure thy were going to do a fly past on Sat - bloody weather :(
