The whole Air Show was great, but the real exciting part was the sudden appearance of the Stealth Bomber!

We were in the Keiser parking lot, near the airport, and I suppose everyone was thinking it would be coming from the airport.. all of a sudden, we turn around to the east and here comes this huge WEIRD looking thing from the direction of PAFB.

Kinda hard to convey how impressive it was- it really did look like a spaceship.. it was like watching a UFO in broad daylight.

I was amazed to hear that the Air Force plans to retire the B2 in the 2020s, but keep the B52 flying.

Those years ago, while working for NGC in Melbourne we all gathered at the "hanger" and got to watch the "Spirit of Florida" do some fly byes on the the day it was christened.

Certainly, and totally, awesome.

B-2 was Saturday only at 145. T-birds were around 230 to 315 ish. Anchored up in the river by frog bones.

The B2 was BADASS, I lucked out and caught maybe the best video/view of it from my roof off Poinsetta ave in Indialantic. We were looking out towards the air show and heard a noise coming in off the ocean and there it was. It felt like it was close enought to touch it. I have no clue how to post the vid from my phone to here though. Most videos I have seen have been of the bottom of it. The B2 banked a turn just above my house and I have a couple minute video of it. Paddleout if you want message me or text 321-544-one203 and I'll text you it to try n upload here.

TATTOO

the best way to get your videos on 2ndlight is to download the youtube app to your phone, and then upload the video to youtube using it.

Then find the video on youtube from your desktop- click "share" and then "embed" and grab the embed code.

Paste that into a post and it will show up

The B2 flew over the March for our Lives and people cheered and loved it.

See if this worked.. Got lucky and caught this bad boy coming in off the ocean and headed towards the air show. Made it to my roof and heard a noise coming up behind me and there it was. First attempt at posting a video on here and creating a youtube. Keep in mind video shot from my iPhone and glare was so bad I couldn't even tell if I had the B2 in the frame or not. Thought about zooming in, but didn't want to risk ruining the video all together. https://youtu.be/BvahNfU71qw

I remember seeing F-100s from the roof of the round apartments (now condos) in CB.

Pretty, awesome technology, but a nearly pointless sink for a lot of your tax dollars.
