Two B-2 Spirit Stealth Bombers arrive at RAF Fairford June 2014

Not sure if this has been posted recently but thought I would post the you tube clip. It is 8 min long. I don't know what it is but these aircraft fascinate me for some reason.

Impressive video.
Obviously an experienced Cameraman.

Part of my job at BAe as a Cameraman many moons ago was in filming take-off and landings of Fighter aircraft made there.
Jaguars, Tornadoes and MRCA in my time.
And.... Lightnings, they are ridiculously fast, and the Pilots would go vertical as soon as they were Airborne, used to catch me out until I got used to it !!
16mm, 35mm and specialised 70mm Cameras, both normal speed and high speed framing rates, for analysis too.
I seem to recall the Cinema 70mm camera films were actually 65mm wide, with 5mm for Audio on the Print, we used Military 70mm wide film in the cameras.

Thanks for sharing the video.

They are very large Aircraft, but then they are Bombers.

Nice video. I have a similar fascination for the A-10 Warthog II with its fart of death, courtesy of the GAU-8 Avenger.

When I lived in Norfolk, they would come up the A140, fly over the Village, turn round and go back to their Airbase !

Bit jealous; I've only seen them on video!
