I have the privilege of working on the B2. It has a hump... maybe FMS is making a B2 bomber.

Well afgoalie, a couple of things.

One, I'm jealous of your line of work. Two, I would love nothing more than if FMS was getting ready to release the B-2 Spirit (one that is stable unlike LX's version) but I can honestly say that's not it. It is a WWII tail-draggin' warbird with flaps and guns.

I did purchase a kit version of that LX model. Worked great as a display/retirement gift for a retiring Chief. I would be first in line for one with solid flight characteristics.

When a B-2 is flying up at altitude, you will only see 2 lights; the anti-collision lights (strobe). Unless, of course, it'd doing it's "thing", you won't see anything. Further, they are very quiet when flying. Not trying to say you didn't see a couple of B-2s Aros; just giving you a better idea of a B-2. I worked on them as a AFSC 2A676 for over 11 years.

I'm going to laugh my butt off if it's another Mustang! I, for one, LOVE Mustangs...

Well NOW things get interesting! I would have absolutely thought they were UFOs but I could plainly here the low rumbling of engines. I assumed they were two B-2s because one, their chevron-shaped lighting config and two, I saw two B-2s flying above our neighborhood at high altitude in the daytime once so I assumed that's what they were.

Thanks for the clarification. Here's a rendering of what I saw when I looked up. The white lights were non-blinking and the red light just aft of the front white light would blink very slowly. Whatever it was it wasn't commercial.

I think that rules out the P-39.


A Hurricane would be cool, just a shame I just bought the E-Flite one.
