Well looks like we just lost a billion dollar aircraft, glad the pilots made it out!

Holy Sh**! I would not want to be those pilots right about now. They'll be flying predators after this, if they are lucky!

Thats a shame to loose a aircraft, but thankfully both pilots were able to eject.

Wow, this is certainly big news. I certainly never thought this would ever happen. Glad the pilots are out ok. Any info yet as to the cause?

I would guess engine failure followed by pilot-induced oscillation. The B-2A is inherently unstable.
