WHITEMAN AIR FORCE BASE – Whiteman Air Force Base pilots will fly over the NASCAR Hollywood Casino 400 in support of community partners in Kansas City, Missouri, on Oct. 24, at Kansas Speedway.
The event will include a B-2 Spirit aircraft assigned to the 509th Bomb Wing, which is set to flyover the track before the race begins, currently scheduled for 2 p.m. on race day.
The B-2 is America’s premier strategic stealth bomber and one of the world’s most advanced aircraft. Participating in flyover events provides the training needed for pilots to remain mission-ready and showcase the trusted capability of Whiteman AFB Airmen to be prepared anytime, anywhere across the globe.
The U.S. Air Force performs almost 1,000 flyovers each year, including air shows, sporting and holiday events. Flyovers are fully functional training missions, designed to maintain readiness for Air Force pilots and maintainers; they are conducted at no additional cost to taxpayers and are incorporated into existing flying schedules.
