B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber Returns to Rose Bowl: Mark Holtzman Captures Spectacular Images of Flyover

The return of the B-2 Spirit stealth bomber at the Tournament of Roses Parade and Rose Bowl game was a sight to behold, as the iconic aircraft graced the skies after a hiatus in 2023. This visually stunning spectacle, a New Year's Day tradition since 2005, was beautifully captured in photograph and video by renowned photographer, Mark Holtzman.

The segments on Good Day LA, a popular morning news program, provided viewers with a breathtaking perspective of the parade and game. The show featured Mark Holtzman's stunning photography and videography of the B-2 flyover, capturing the aircraft's grace and majesty amidst the excitement of the Pasadena celebrations. Holtzman's work offered an unprecedented view of this longstanding tradition, garnering widespread appreciation from spectators nationwide.

The B-2, belonging to the Air Force 509th Bomb Wing, had been absent from the 2023 Rose Bowl following an emergency grounding. The decision to bring the B-2 back for the 2024 event reflects Team Whiteman's ongoing commitment to this beloved tradition.

The flyover served as the perfect kickoff to the playoff Rose Bowl Matchup, pitting the University of Michigan's Wolverines against the University of Alabama's Crimson Tide.
