Give it back to the Government

Reports are this morning that an Air Force B-2 Spirit bomber has gone down on Guam, but the two pilots (from the 509th bomb wing) had safely ejected from the striken $1.2 billion dollar aircraft.

When pilots eject, they joke that they're "Giving the plane back to the government." And in this case, its an expensive give back.

UPDATE - Looks like the USAF grounded all the B2's until they know the cause of the accident. At $1.2 billion a copy, thats a pretty safe decision.
