The US Air Force is planning to unveil the most advanced aircraft ever created early next month after spending nearly $203 billion on the program.
The B-21 Raider stealth bomber will be unveiled at the Northrop Grumman facility in Palmdale, California, on December 2.
The bomber was designed to carry out long-range bombing and nuclear missions employing cutting edge stealth technologies.
There are currently six bombers being built in Palmdale at the cost of about $2 billion per aircraft. They are expected to be flying in 2023.
The Air Force and Northrop began developing the bomber in 2015 after the aerospace and defense company won the contract to design and produce the aircraft.
The advanced aircraft was named after the Doolittle Raiders – a team of B-21 bomber crewmen from World War II known for their daring and bravery.
