Very very cool.:thumbup:
Cruising along over southern Kansas yesterday and got a traffic call from ATC:
"You have traffic, eleven o'clock, one zero miles, northeast bound; a pair of B2s."
Pretty darned cool. Only the 2nd...
Dang, Kelly Whatcha' doin' in Chattanooga?!? I'm already home, or I might have offered you a ride.
Back to the east coast this week with both airplanes, so I got to see the 7X
flying around without me in it. Kind of a neat takeoff shot:
