    The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed shortly after World War II. It was a jet-powered development of the earlier, piston-engined Northrop XB-35 and YB-35. The YB-49 never entered production. Design work performed in the development of the YB-35 and YB-49 nonetheless proved to be valuable to Northrop decades later in the eventual development of the B-2 stealth bomber, which entered service in the early 1990s.

    "The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed by Northrop Corporation shortly after World War II for service with the U.S. Air Force. The YB-49 featured a flying wing design and was a jet-powered development of the earlier, piston-engined Northrop XB-35 and YB-35. The two YB-49s actually built were both converted YB-35 test aircraft."

Data collected from the Northrop YB-49 test flights was used decades later in the development of the B-2 bomber.

B-2 Stealth Bomber This is one of the most nepherious looking planes I have ever seen. I saw one flying over Duncanville, Texas. It looked wicked! JL

Experimental technology has to start somewhere. The Northrop YB-35 flying wing was very unstable but it was an important concept in designing an aircraft that could increase its usable payload. When fly-by-wire technology was developed that the aircraft became much more stable to fly.
