The plane went down shortly after taking off from Andersen Air
Force Base. Service officials say the plane was on its final flight
out of the U.S. territory after a four-month deployment.
The pilots were both able to eject before the plane hit the
ground. The Air Force says one of them was released after a medical
evaluation, while the other is hospitalized in stable condition with unspecified injuries.
A board of officers will investigate. It's the first time a B-2 has crashed.
Since 1988, 21 of the bat-like warplanes have been built, at a cost of about one-point-two billion dollars each. The B-2s have all been based at Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, although the Air Force has been rotating them several at a time through Guam, along
with B-1 and B-52 bombers.
