    Moisture in the pitot static system!
    Three separate ADC's all giving bad data due to moisture!
    The maintenance program for insuring the cleanliness of the pitot static system just changed!

      Never flew a B-2 obviously, but if the instruments aren't displaying the airspeed that is usual for that time on the takeoff roll wouldn't they have shut it down? Just curious, our planes are about 1 billion dollars cheaper a piece and the instruments may have shown all as normal. THen theres still the how are we at rotate speed in half the usual distance.

          Like most everyone around here, I haven't flown, been a passenger in, or anything else around the B2. I have seen them fly!

          The flight control computers receive information from the pitot / static system as does the basic air data instruments. As I understand the aircraft's flight control system, The ADC's use pitot / static pressure to sense AOA instead of the usual air vane which is not compatible with STEALTH. The F-117 used a similar system. Small changes is pitot / static pressure delivered from faceted probes to the ADC's are used to compute the AOA.
