The Amazing B2 Stealth Bomber at the Rose Bowl 1/1/09

If you watched the Rose Bowl (NCAA football game) this year on New Year's Day, you may have seen the B-2 Stealth Bomber fly over during the playing of the national anthem.  It is an amazing sight just to see on TV is you were lucky enough to have been watching, again before the game even actually started.

I am lucky enough to live 20 minutes from Pasadena and was able to see the 1.15 billion dollar jet in person as it flew back to its home air force base.  If you ever get a chance to go to an air show or know about a flight like this you can simply watch, take it.

This amazing picture does not justice to the real life effect of watching it in flight.

If you have ever witnessed this, back me up on the awe-factor by replying with your comment.

  1. I, for one, missed the Rose Bowl this year. It seemed the day just slipped away. Many years ago I went to the Rose Bowl three years in a row, this was back in the early 70's. It is quite the event, but exhausting to walk into the BOWL and then have to sit on bleachers...
    In the old days the stealth bombers did not fly over, but you are correct an air show is something to see.

  2. A little known fact, I was born in Pasadena. Growing up I can recall new years eves in sleeping bags on the sidewalk on Colorado boulevard to ensure our front row seat for the Rose Parade the next day. However, I do not recall there ever being bombers flying overhead, Our tax dollars at work I guess. I wonder how much that cost us...
