The B-2 is a cool plane. It’s stealth. It can fly from Missouri to, well, anywhere and back. It looks sleek. When yours truly was attending the vaunted University of Missouri journalism school, football season usually kicked off with a B-2 flyover from nearby Whiteman Air Force Base (and the Tigers beating up a cupcake opponent).
And now Disney has managed to make the B-2 cute. The Spirit gets a cameo in the trailer for its upcoming movie Planes, which, as far as I can tell, seems to be more focused on a P-51 Mustang launching off an aircraft carrier. But still, the B-2 plush toy can’t be too far behind.
