  Aerotech News Digital Edition - February 7, 2020

Hello, friends – thanks for checking out the latest digital edition of Aerotech News and Review. Now entering our 34th year of publication – my, how time flies! Seems like just yesterday that Northrop was getting ready to roll out the B-2 bomber at Palmdale’s AF Plant 42, and here on our cover this week we have an artist’s rendering of the next generation of bomber air power, the B-21 Raider. It looks very similar… but we know all the lessons learned in the development and manufacture of the B-2 will make the B-21 a technological powerhouse. So exciting to think that the time is drawing near for this aircraft to take to the skies over Aerospace Valley! Click on the link below for the story, and visit our website,, for more artist renderings of the B-21 (use our Search tool to find them).
