B-2 Arrivals @ RAF Fairford 08-06-2014

A trip down into Gloucestershire for the arrival of two B-2's on a temporary deployment, choosing to arrive on a Sunday afternoon was a very sociable time & there was what must have been over a mile of parked cars there to view the arrival!

An extra bonus was a minor landing gear problem on 'Death 11' which required tow low passes for the gear to be visually inspected.

The 3 deployed B-52's were also visible across the airfield, so photography wasn't great! But for the record...
