Yup, 100% mechanical failure on the crash.

There's one other significant B2 incident so before anyone claims a mil pilot did a gearup, that one was design failure of the landing gear.

If you want to talk trash about mil pilots, you need to pick another airframe. There are like 100 qualified B-2 pilots, and they are specially selected and screened due to the very low inventory of the airplane... they can't afford any hull losses due to admin pilot errors.

Awright, knock it off. One dude grossly misrepresented facts to slander an entire group, and caught some shade for it. We can move on now.
