COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Air Force says a Missouri-based B2 stealth bomber landed in Colorado Springs after an unspecified emergency.
A spokesman for the 21st Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base, Sgt. Brian Bender, says the base’s first responders responded to an emergency involving the plane at about 4:20 a.m. Tuesday.
He referred questions about the bomber’s emergency to Whiteman Air Force Base in Warrensburg, Missouri because it is the aircraft’s home base.
Officials at the base did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
The B2 costs about $1 billion, is designed to evade enemy radar and carries a two-person crew.
