The B-2 bomber crashed at Andersen Air Force Base and both pilots, who have been evaluated by medical authorities, are in good condition, the Air Force said in a statement.
An Air Force spokeswoman said it was the first crash of a B-2 bomber, but did not give any details about the bomber’s mission in Guam.
Investigations will be carried out on the accident. The B-2 bomber, which costs about 1.2 billion U.S. dollars, is among the most advanced warplanes of the U.S. Air Force, each capable of carrying up to 20 2,000-pound (900 kg) satellite-guided bombs and having a range of 6,000 nautical miles (11,112 km) without refueling.
