stealth bomber...

This article about publicized pics of a stealth bomber crash last year reveals two things to me:

1. Wow, that's pretty cool to look at, and
2. Stealth bombers have names. "Spirit of Kansas". A little searching finds this site that lists the other names about 2/3 of the way down. They're mostly Spirit of [state] but some have informal names too, like Christine or Arnold the Pig. Arnold the Pig. Awesome.

I bet they don't get to paint a thingie on the nose of the plane though. That'd show up on radar. Oh well...
