Planned B-2 stealth bomber flyover ahead of Chiefs home-opener canceled due to poor weather

Aircraft is operated by the 509th and 131st Bomb Wings

A planned B-2 stealth bomber flyover prior to the start of the Kansas City Chiefs home-opener at Arrowhead Stadium against the Houston Texans was canceled over inclement weather.

The Whiteman Air Force Base, which is located outside Kansas City, said in a press release that low cloud cover and poor visibility was the purpose for canceling the flyover.

“Continuing a long-standing tradition between Team Whiteman and our community partners, the Kansas City Chiefs organization, the B-2 Spirit was slated to open the game featuring the KC Chiefs vs. the Houston Texans with a demonstration of precision air power,” officials said in a statement.

“The 509th Bomb Wing continues a strong legacy of partnership and will join future community events soon.

“The B-2 Spirit is America’s premier strategic stealth bomber and one of the world’s most advanced aircraft. It is operated by the active-duty 509th Bomb Wing and the Missouri Air National Guard’s 131st Bomb Wing at Whiteman AFB, Missouri, 45 miles east of Kansas City."

The defending Super Bowl champs will have a tough task looking to fend off the Texans, who are seeking revenge for being eliminated by Kansas City in the playoffs. Houston built out a giant lead early in their game but blew it and lost 51-31, which sent the Chiefs to the AFC Championship game.
