Nice photo !!! Did they deploy from Hanscom AFB? That’s an impressive display of our Military!!! ScooterI didn't have my Spark with me....I had planned to try and photograph them at an anticipated distance ....a bit more across the Charles river....but they flew overhead several hundred feet above during the July 4th weekend in Boston. A really expensive collection of flying machines....In 5 waves.
View attachment 13097 View attachment 13098Guesstimating the altitude based on camera field of view and lens setting gives a flight altitude of about 3000 feet.
The photo metadata says 95 mm lens
The B2 wingspan is 52.4 meters (Wikipedia)
The width of the shot is about 149 meters (2.8 x the wingspan).

A field of view calculator gives 950 meters as the distance (altitude) or 3116 ft to that field of view.
Probably they flew at around 3000 feet.

With refueling they stay up for a long time. Pease ANG for refueling ? Another photographer said Langley for a destination. Missouri , I read, is home base.Did they deploy from Hanscom AFB
I've been using a new DSLR for a few weeks. The aircraft were taken by using 'aperture priority' with a set iso in broad daylight. The camera selects shutter speed when you take the shot.Cool picture!
