The first photo of the B-21 Raider during a test flight was released along with other two new images of the 6th generation bomber.

The U.S. Air Force has released the first photo showing a Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider bomber in flight. The image was taken during one of the test flights of the 6th generation aircraft conducted out of Edwards Air Force Base, by the B-21 Combined Test Force.

As we have recently reported, the new B-21 Raider stealth bomber is currently undergoing flight tests at Edwards Air Force Base in California. However, the U.S. Air Force has remained tight-lipped about the progress since the aircraft’s first flight, and has not released any official photos. The images available so far were taken by photographers who captured the Raider during its initial flight or subsequently flying overhead.

The B-21’s flight tests began at Edwards Air Force Base after its first flight from Air Force Plant 42 in Palmdale on November 10, 2023. Despite the Air Force’s secrecy about the bomber’s status, it acknowledged that the flight test campaign is ongoing. A spokesperson confirmed that the B-21 flew again on January 17, 2024, and subsequent flights were rumored to have occurred in late March and early April, with the a recent confirmed flight on April 4, 2024.
