B-2 Spirit stealth bomber flyover at Arrowhead Stadium canceled due to inclement weather

A B-2 Spirit stealth bomber flyover, originally scheduled for the National Football League season opener game on Sept.10, 2020, has been canceled due to low cloud cover and poor visibility.

Continuing a long-standing tradition between Team Whiteman and our community partners, the Kansas City Chiefs organization, the B-2 Spirit was slated to open the game featuring the KC Chiefs vs. the Houston Texans with a demonstration of precision air power.

The 509th Bomb Wing continues a strong legacy of partnership and will join future community events soon.

The B-2 Spirit is America’s premier strategic stealth bomber and one of the world’s most advanced aircraft. It is operated by the active-duty 509th Bomb Wing and the Missouri Air National Guard’s 131st Bomb Wing at Whiteman AFB, Missouri, 45 miles east of Kansas City.
