US Air Force to show strategic bomber B-21 Raider in December.

The US Air Force will show the new B-21 Raider stealth bomber, considered the “coolest” aircraft in the world, in December. The presentation will take place at the Northrop Grumman facility.

During a round table at the US Air Force conference, Andrew Hunter, head of the agency’s procurement department, said that the aircraft would be shown at the Northrop Grumman plant in California, where the B-21 is assembled.

The company noted that the presentation of the aircraft will be a private event. The invited journalists will be shown the plane from certain angles. This will prevent leakage of classified data on the design of the B-21.

In August, it was reported that the B-21, which will make its first flight in 2023, makes Russia and China “nervous”. One hundred aircraft should become the basis of the air component of the US nuclear triad.
