Verovatno nije toliko bitno, ali privuklo mi je pažnju. Da li je ovaj simbol ispred vrata prednjeg stajnog trapa nekakav amblem za B-21...

... ili možda novi logo kompanije? Pomalo podseća na Grumanov logo iz prve polovine 1970-ih...



... ili je naprosto neki nose art?

Stari logo Grumana bio si u pravu.

Sta je sve bilo zabranjeno na prikazu i kako i cime je smelo biti snimano. Zato imamo samo jednu sliku iz daljine...

Citat:The B-21 was also towed to 75 feet from the photography riser, and its back — including details such as its engines and trailing edge — could not be seen.

Venable expects that level of secrecy to continue for the foreseeable future. And given the level of classification involved with the B-21 and sensitivity of the program, he said, that’s a good thing.

“They’re going to keep it under wraps as long as they can,” Venable said. “My imagination says they will only fly it at night [and] only roll it out of hangars at night, so that it becomes that much harder for you to get an idea [of what is on the plane]. You can tell a lot by the wing line, by the inlets, by a bunch of other things.”

Members of the press had to follow strict guidelines about what equipment they could bring into which sections of the highly classified facility.

For example, iPhones, smart watches and other mobile devices — with their high-resolution, zoomable cameras, video recording, and transmission capabilities — were not allowed anywhere near the Raider.

Before reporters were let into the hangar where the cloaked Raider sat for a pre-ceremony briefing with Air Force and Northrop Grumman officials, they had to turn off their devices and hand them to Northrop Grumman employees, who then locked them into secure Yondr pouches. The devices were returned after the rollout, outside of the ceremony area.

And press photographers were given a list of requirements for the equipment they could use to shoot the bomber. If anyone tried to dodge these rules, they were warned, their cameras would be held by Northrop Grumman until the Air Force could conduct a security review of the images.

An uncompromising limit on camera lens size was set at 50 millimeters, which meant no zooming in on the plane. The photography riser was placed right in the middle, looking straight down the B-21′s nose, without views of its side or at an angle. Cameras had to be mounted on tripods at exactly 6 feet — no higher, no lower. With the 3-foot-tall riser, that placed the cameras at 9 feet, about level with the edge where the upper and lower parts of the bomber joined.

It sometimes made for a tense scene on the riser, as one photographer of a slightly shorter stature protested he wouldn’t be able to see through the viewfinder if the camera was at 6 feet.

Venable said the height requirement was likely set so no images were taken that could reveal sensitive aspects of the bomber’s top or bottom surfaces.

“If I was to speculate, it’s that there are apertures and there are things that are invisible at the nine-foot line that you would be able to actually read into” with a higher or lower view, Venable said. “This airplane is supposed to be so revolutionary that it’s got to have something that’s worth masking. The bottom and the top and the back of the airplane are going to reveal a lot.”

And at the end of the ceremony, Northrop Grumman chief executive Kathy Warden hinted this would be the public’s last glimpse of the Raider for a while — at least until its first flight next year.

“The next time you see this plane, it’ll be in the air,” Warden said.

Sta sve grade u bazi Ellsworth

Citat:According to justifications (the so-called “J-Books”) in the Air Force’s fiscal 2023 budget, just released, three military construction projects at Ellsworth are requested for a collective $328 million, including a Low Observables Restoration Facility, a Weapons Generation Facility, and a Radio Frequency Facility.

The two-bay LO restoration facility, which is to be climate-controlled and have filtration gear to support spray-on stealth treatments, is to be finished by September 2024, according to the documents. The weapons generating facility—which will assemble bombs and missiles and get them ready to be loaded onto aircraft—is to be complete by February 2026. No completion date was given for the Radio Frequency Facility, which will test the B-21’s stealth prior to missions.
