Plane Crash

The Most Expensive Warplane And Why It's Feared by Many

The B-2 Stealth Bomber is the most expensive aircraft to ever be manufactured. Owned by the United States this plane costs a staggering 1 billion dollars. So what's so special about this plane.

The plane's unique body makes it look like a large bird while flying thus making it almost invisible to enemies. The planes uses stealth materials that make it undetectable hence it can't be easily seen, this enables it to easily penetrate an enemy's most sophisticated defenses and attack heavily defended targets.

Another extra feature is that the plane’s engines are not located outside the plane but inside thus ensuring that the plane does not reflect radar waves back to the enemy dish. Secondly this plane is very silent, unlike other jets which you can hear before even seeing them. Thus it's too quiet for most people on the ground to notice it flying nearby and it gives off little heat therefore making it difficult for missiles and fighters sent to down it.

This aircraft is used to carry various weapons such as nuclear weapons, precision-guided munitions, gravity bombs and a range of maritime weapons. However only 21 of these planes were ever manufactured thus making this one of the rarest and most sought after plane in the world.
