A video shared on Twitter claims to show a B-2 bomber flying over Miami, Florida, in preparation for the moving of missile defenses.

Verdict: Misleading

The bomber was flying as part of an air show. There is no evidence it was for anything else.

Fact Check:

The Twitter video, which shows a B-2 bomber flying over a breach, claims that the missile defenses are being moved to locations on the west coast and implies the bomber is part of this.

This claim is highly misleading. Through a reverse image search, Check Your Fact found that the video is from the Hyundai Air and Sea Show. A tweet from the event shows the B-2 bomber flying over Miami as part of the air show.

“The @usairforce B-2’s graceful maneuvers and cutting-edge design left us in awe of its sheer power and precision. It was a truly unforgettable sight that reminded us of the extraordinary capabilities of our military aircraft,” reads the tweet.
