If it's in the air – maintenance put it there

The 509th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Airmen are the keepers of the B-2 Spirit. From landing gear to the steering system, it takes approximately one year for a member to be certified to perform maintenance on the aircraft. A full inspection of a B-2 typically takes three to four days. Every square inch of the aircraft is carefully scrutinized to ensure maximum combat readiness and a deployable force capable of projecting global firepower at a moment's notice, anytime and anywhere.
