On monday I walked 18 miles from Concordia to Knob Noster, and as I was getting closer to Knob Noster, I was able to watch several Stealth B-2 Bombers taking off and flying above me. Knob Noster is home of Whiteman Air Force Base, which is home to the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber, the world's most sophisticated and advanced aircraft. Watching them -- and hearing them -- fly above me was one of the most awesome moments I can remember. They were out practicing, and I saw one fly overhead about every 10 or 15 minutes. I counted 9, and I hope at least one of the pictures I took turns out. If you watched the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena, CA on New Years Day, you probably saw the B-2 Bomber and 2 F117's fly overhead at the beginning of the parade. The B-2 Bomber came from here, and the 2 F117's were out of Hallomen AFB in New Mexico
This evening I'll be getting together with several people from Knob Noster for dinner, and then on wednesday I hope to give talks at the High School. I'll be staying at this motel tues night and also wed night, if you'd like to give me a call. The ph# here is: 660-563-3000 Rm 111.
Take care and have a great day! KB.
