US Air Force unveils picture of new stealth bomber
The US Air Force (USAF) recently unveiled the first ever image of its futuristic stealth bomber, the B-21, which will be the first American bomber of the 21st century.
Addressing the US Air Force Association’s Air Warfare Symposium in Florida, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James revealed a concept of the plane known until now as the Long Range Strike Bomber (LRS-B).
“This aircraft represents the future for our airmen, and [their] voice is important to this process,” James said, adding that the aircraft’s final name will be announced at the conference this fall.
The designation B-21 recognises the aircraft as the military’s first bomber of the 21st century, according to USAF.
