*Some important points:

 

- The B-2's generally air-to-air refueled every 4 hours.

 

- The B-2's have a 2 person crew, so one would sleep during the less involved portions of the Flight (so in MSFS you can do similar if you're keen, or just fast forward time)

 

- Initially, 2 hours was spent over Afghanistan. Later, the Crew were asked to re-enter Afghanistan for a further 1.5 hours.

 

 

 

 

(Note: The information I was able to find for the Mission was quite good - other than where the B-2's went inside Afghanistan.

So as a compromise, I've included a few different waypoints within Afghanistan to 'tick the box'.)
