The top secret Northrop B-2 Stealth Bomber was unveiled to the public in November 1988. Almost immediately it flew into a storm of controversy including critics who said it cost to much and that it was designed to attack the Soviet Union, a mission by the late 1980s that seemed no longer very likely. While media commentators felt it was too expensive and unworkable, the reality is that from a technological perspective, it is light years ahead of anything fielded by America's potential adversaries. "Northrop B-2 Stealth Bomber" describes in unprecedented detail the design and development of this extraordinary aircraft from the first draft designs to the highly successful test-flight program that occurred in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The major sections of this book are as follows: 1) Introduction - Of Bombers, Quotes, and Votes; 2) Birth of a Bomber; 3) Under the Skin; 4) Changing Times, Changing Missions; 5) A Billion Here, a Billion There; 6) Appendix I - B-2 Data and 7) Appendix II - Index. In addition to an informative narrative, this book includes the following: 1) Approximately 44 black and white photographs and 2) About 17 black and white illustrations. This book is 96 pages and with the exception of several loose pages that have been glued back to the spine, is in very good condition. The author is Bill Sweetman. Edition published in 1992.
