A B-2 Spirit from the 13th Bomb Squadron, Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., banks over the flightline at Nellis AFB, Nev., during a Red Flag 14-1 night training mission Jan. 29, 2014.

The B-2 is a multi-role bomber capable of delivering both conventional and nuclear munitions.

The 13 BS is participating in Red Flag to show what Global Strike stealth assets do when incorporated into the exercise's mission planning. Red Flag night missions present the additional challenge of low visibility, testing the aircrew's ability to execute the mission at any hour in a contested and degraded environment.
