Welcome back to the our channel for the story behind the insane design and complex processes around the world’s most expensive stealth bomber ever made. The first time I had seen one was at the IAT at Fairford and it looked like nothing created by man, it was awesome, the Battle of Britain Flight was also there and I thought aircraft have gone from the Lancaster to the B2 in a single lifetime. Having said that, I suspect it's like the Tiger Tank, a superb bit of kit, but too expensive, too complicated and too few in number to make an impact, the Russian T34 and Sherman tanks showed how it should be done, cheap and easy to make, and lots of them. Many years ago during my executive job coaching days a man contacted me to help with his job search. He told me he had invented the coating to scatter radio waves and go stealth and sent me a newspaper article to prove it. Our govt confiscated his patent "in the interest of national security" and didn't pay him for it. What happens if an enemy devises a stronger detection system to render the stealth planes vulnerable to interception and destruction? At 2 billion bucks a shot I would say that the US cannot afford to lose any of these planes to enemy action.
