We Have A Broken Arrow

A B-2 Stealth Bomber was forced to make an emergency landing in Colorado Springs – Colorado? Eww, it must have been an emergency – after an engine malfunctioned and the electronics failed.

A US Air Force B-2 stealth bomber safely landed at Colorado Springs Airport Tuesday morning after suffering an in-flight emergency, a spokesperson with the 21st Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base confirmed to CNN.

The $1.2 billion aircraft was en route to Whiteman Air Force Base, Missouri. Two pilots were on board and both aviators were unharmed, and the exact cause of the in-flight emergency is under investigation, according to the Air Force.

“The aircraft experienced an in-flight emergency. Our pilots are trained to handle such emergencies and safely landed the aircraft. A Maintenance Recovery Team will assess the aircraft and determine the cause,” Air Force spokesperson Lt. Allen Palmer said in a statement Wednesday.

A US military official told CNN on Wednesday that the aircraft was diverted after experiencing a number four engine failure, followed by complete electrical failure.

The worst part was not the emergency landing; it was the fact the crew couldn’t see the end of the Avalanche-Flyers game.

    1. If they had, I hope they’d be aimed just over the southern border. Not aiming at the crowd, mind you, just far enough in front of the invasion to deter them a bit.
