SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

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.
