The US military is investigating why a B-2 stealth bomber crashed shortly after take-off on the island of Guam.
The United States Air Force (USAF) says the crash is the first ever involving the radar evading plane, which cost about $1.2bn (£610m) each to build.
They say both pilots ejected safely before the plane came down at Andersen Air Force Base.
The B-2 was one of just 21 such aircraft operated by the US, the only country which has the stealth bomber.
The crashed aircraft was not carrying munitions at the time of the incident, according to a statement from the Pacific Air Command.
The bomber is capable of carrying nuclear as well as conventional weapons.
