The B-2 Spirit stealth bomber made its first overseas deployment 20 years ago — here’s why it’s still one of the most feared aircraft in the sky.

The B-2 was originally intended to carry nuclear bombs deep into Soviet territory if the Cold War had ever turned hot. Its shape – paired with the plane’s stealth systems – would enable it to be undetected by Soviet radars.

The B-2’s long range meant it could fly deep into enemy territory and return home.
