This mug celebrates the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber. Whether by coincidence or by design, the side profile of a B-2 closely matches side profile of a hawk. Regardless of the angle seen from, the B-2 looks right and flies right.
One side of the mug features the top, front, and side view of the B-2 drawn in proportion of each other. Please notice how the length is considerably shorter than the width. The side view also depicts the B-2 as Mk-82 bombs are being released.
On the other side of the mug, a side profile of a hawk is compared to the side profile of the B-2.
