* J. Robert Oppenheimer (1965)

By arrangement and through reassuring multiple layers of serious security throughout the process we were able to tour a B-2 bomber at Whiteman AFB, Missouri. No phones, no cameras, no hats (potential FOD).

The tour is fascinating and, of course, sobering.

One comes away with a greater appreciation for the dedication and professionalism of the ground and flight crews. They don’t have easy jobs.
