Very impressive ! Hard to imagine that they were so advanced technologically.
No wonder why so many of their scientists were hired by the Allied forces after the war. Wink

I remember that in the old war of the worlds movie they used USAF footage of the yb 49 or so least thats what I think the wing was. here is newsreel footage of a test flight. I also remember when the the B1's were deployed up here we would drive to the country and set in the back of the truck and watch them come in to land at the grand forks AFB. They were a sight but that was in the 80's.

A fantastic concept, indeed originated from German minds - To say the B-2 "came from" this is a bit of a stretch though.
You can point to any rocket, jet or swept wing aircraft and say the same, nothing more than an abstract generality.
