This mug commemorates the longest sortie in USAF History. Imagine being airborne and in combat for 44.3 hours. On October 7, 2001, the B-2 Spirit of America took off from Whitman AFB in MO, flew across the Pacific, and conducted two bombing sorties in Afghanistan before landing on Diago Garcia.
This sortie was made possible by the USAF aerial re-fueling capability with planes like the KC-135 Stratotanker.
One side of the mug features incredibly detailed views of the B-2 stealth bomber. The center of the mug features a top view that is flanked with the emblems of the 509th Bomb Wing. The side view depicts the B-2 releasing ordnance and the topview is wheels down.
The other side commemorates the longest sortie in USAF history. A world map with the B-2's flight path and important facts really showcases how extraordinary this sortie was. Three views of the KC-135 Stratotanker reminds everyone of the importance of aerial refueling.
This artwork is also available on water bottles, coasters, koozies, and t-shirts.
