Thanks for checking out the September 20th edition of Aerotech News and Review! We have a great issue of local aerospace, military and veteran news lined up for you this week, starting off with the official announcement of something that’s been known in Aerospace Valley for a while now: the production of the B-21 Raider at Northrop Grumman’s facility in Palmdale, CA. Acting Secretary of the Air Force Matthew Donovan confirmed this week that the Raider is in production at the same facility where Northrop’s B-2 Spirit bomber was built 30+ years ago. So if you or your neighbor have been sneaking out to work at 5 a.m. in a black trench coat and sunglasses, you all can cast off your camouflage – we know that another bat-winged bomber will be taking to the skies above the AV in the not-too-distant future!
