B-2 Spirit - Information Report

B-2 Spirit

The flying wing design is an American bomber with a crew of two. Military aircraft designers learned that there was a new way to keep away from missiles. The idea was to build an aircraft that could stop radar signals. The total cost of the B-2 Spirit was $2.1 billion dollars per aircraft in 1997.

What is it known for?
In order to make the B-2 Spirit more effective many advanced systems were involved in its design. The B-2 is the only aircraft that can carry large air to surface weapons. It was responsible for destroying 33% bombing targets in the first eight weeks. It went into service on 1997 as the second aircraft to have advanced technology.

First Flight
Being introduced on April 1997 the first flight of the aircraft was on 17 July 1989. As of September 2013 about 80 pilots flew the B-2. A number of upgrades have been added to the B-2. Each aircraft has a pilot in the left seat and mission commander in the right.

The B-2 is a flying wing aircraft meaning it has no main body or tail. Most of the B-2 Spirit is made out of carbon graphite. In this aircraft only one crew member can sleep in a camp bed, use a toilet, or prepare a hot meal.  It has supply for a third crew member if needed.


President George Bush announced that there would only be 20 B-2 aircraft's allowed to be built. A total of 20 B-2's remain in service with the United States Air Force. There have been no examples of a missile being launched at a B-2.

Battle Sheets

L.I - to investigate coordinates
Today for maths I had to play a game of battle sheets with my classmate Mataio. The way to play this game is you have to have two players. You both have a Aircraft Carrier, Battle Ship, Cruiser, Destroyer and Frigate. You both have to place those ships anywhere in the top left box. Then under the box you have to enter  x of where you think their ship is. You keep going until one of you get all five of the opponents ships. As you can see in this game I won and Mataio had lost. The difference between me and Mataio is that I spread my ships out and Mataio didn't. This game make use strategy and your coordinates skills and is a very fun and brilliant game and that's why I recommended this game for you.

B-2 Spirit - Drawing

9 Dec 2016 10:06:20.jpg

Today for Inquiry I had to draw a picture of the fighter Jet I was working on. In the drawing I had to add labels to show you what the bits and pieces are. I found it hard to find some labels for somethings. I learned some more about parts of the B-2 Spirit fighter jet.

Aviator Connections

L.I- to make connections with prior knowledge and to gather information across texts to form an opinion
Today for reading I had to do some research on a Aviator I didn't know about. Once I was done researching I had to find four or more connections between the new aviator Louis Bleriot and the four other Aviators Jean Batten, Amelia Earhart, Richard Pearse and The Wright Brothers.

Key Word Planning

Today for reading I had to research about my fighter jet the B-2 Spirit. Once I found a accurate website I had to skim and scan for key words. I answered the five w's and h using the keywords I found. Then I had to turn the keywords I found into a 25 word summary of the B-2 Spirit.

LS1 Geometry

L.I - To investigate 2D and 3D shape
Today for maths I have been learning about geometry. I have been learning about Faces, Edges and Vertices. In this DLO I had to find objects in the classroom to record the faces, edges and vertices of the objects. I also added images and titles to show you what the item is. I learned what faces, edges and vertices mean in geometry. I found it hard to find objects to record the three things on.

Aviator Speech

Amelia Mary Earhart was born on July 24th, 1897 in Atchison, Kansas in the home of her grandfather. Earhart was the child of Amelia Otis Earhart and Samuel Staton Earhart.

At the age of 10 Amelia saw her first aircraft at the Iowa State fair. She described it to be a thing of rusty wire and wood that did not look interesting to her at all.

Earhart graduated from Chicago's Hyde Park High School in 1916. She kept a scrapbook of newspaper clippings about successful women.  She began junior college at Ogontz School in Pennsylvania, but did not complete her program.

In Long Beach, on December 28, 1920, Earhart and her father visited an airfield where Frank Hawks gave her a ride that would forever change Earhart's life.


Another pioneer female taught Amelia Earhart how to fly a plane. On May 21st Amelia accomplished her goal of flying solo across the atlantic ocean. She took off from Newfoundland, Canada, at 7:12 p.m. on May 20, in her Lockheed Vega. At one point she dropped almost 3,000 feet.


Sadly Amelia Earhart’s adventures came to an end when she disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean on July 2, 1937.
