Chiefs fans will witness B-2 stealth bomber flyover ahead of game vs. Texans

A B-2 stealth bomber from Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri will fly over Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City prior to the Chiefs game against the Houston Texans.

The aircraft is set to appear over the stadium around 8:23 p.m. ET (7:23 p.m. local time), according to FOX4 KC. The limited number of fans who are set to be in attendance for the game are encouraged to be near the stadium or in their seats early to witness the stealth bomber complete its course.

Whiteman Air Force Base is located about 65 miles southeast of Arrowhead Stadium.

According to FOX4 KC, the aircraft is operated by the 509th and 131st Bomb Wings. There will be two ground crew pilots at Arrowhead Stadium for support as the B-2 stealth bomber flies overhead.

"Continuing a long-standing tradition between Team Whiteman and our community partners, the Kansas City Chiefs organization, the B-2 Spirit will open the game with a demonstration of precision air power," a Whiteman Air Force Base spokesman told KMBC-TV.

It is just one part of the festivities for the first game of the season.

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.

Allah disdains not to use the similitude of things, even of a gnat as well as anything above it. Those who believe know that it is truth from their Lord; but those who reject Faith say: "What means Allah by this similitude?" By it He causes many to stray, and many He leads into the right path; but He causes not to stray, except those who forsake (the path),- (The Cow   26 )
