Thatcher Tries Out a B-2: Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher climbed into the cockpit of Northrop Corp.'s B-2 Stealth bomber during a tour of Edwards Air Force Base. She also spoke to thousands of B-2 workers at Northrop’s Palmdale plant.

Thatcher was on a three-day tour of Los Angeles and Orange counties.
