    damn didn't see any ejection seats. Any word on pilot? never mind

    Both pilots ejected safely just after the left wing made contact with the ground; it was the first crash since the maiden B-2 flights nearly 20 years ago. Seems this is a bit old February 23

    Yeah, they got out safely. My snitches in the AF failed me this time. Can't believe I hadn't heard about it until now.

    It was covered in Rolleyes back when it happened.

    I don't know how in hell I missed it back in Feb. CNN's new video of the crash brought me around. They've presented today's vid clip as being a new one. Jezus I'm get'n old.
