B-2 Spirit to kick-off KC Chiefs 2021 season opener with flyover at Arrowhead Stadium

WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE, Mo. --

A U.S. Air Force B-2 Spirit will fly over the Kansas City Chiefs’ NFL season opening game against the Cleveland Browns on Sept.12, at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City.

Continuing a long-standing tradition between Team Whiteman and our community partners, the Kansas City Chiefs organization, the stealth bomber will launch the game with a rumbling demonstration of precision air power during the opening ceremonies right before kick-off at 3:25 p.m. CST. B-2 Spirit ground crew operators from Team Whiteman will be on-site for support of the flyover.

The B-2 Spirit is America’s bomber and one of the world’s most advanced aircraft. It is operated by the 509th and 131st Bomb Wings at Whiteman AFB, Missouri, 45 miles east of Kansas City.
