Peter Carrion MEM 425 9/30/2009 MEM 425: Aircraft Performance & Design Home Work 1 Figure : B2 Stealth Bomber 1 The B2 Stealth Bomber is a very interesting fixed wing aircraft due to its odd shape, and lack of vertical stabilizers.

The odd shape of this aircraft is to reduce radar cross-section, to allow it to be used in stealth reconnaissance missions. This aircraft is also capable of flying at altitudes of 85,000 ft above sea level at speeds of mach 3.2+. 3. Lockheed SR-71 "Blackbird" . (2006).
