Entrance to Whiteman AFB.
Whiteman Air Force Base is located among the wooded hills of central Missouri in eastern Johnson County. The part of the base that is a census-designated place had a population of 2,556 in 2010, down from 3,814 at the 2000 census. The nearest major city is Kansas City, Missouri, 70 miles to the northwest. The base is 3 miles south of the town of Knob Noster, 11 miles east of Warrensburg, and 21 miles west of Sedalia.
Whiteman AFB was established in 1942 as Sedalia Glider Base. It is currently the home of the 509th Bomb Wing, which operates and maintains the Air Force's premier weapon system, the B-2 bomber. The men and women of the wing are capable of flying anywhere around the world from home station and delivering a wide range of precision-guided munitions.
Stealth bombers such as this B-2 are housed at Whiteman AFB.
Throughout its history, Whiteman Air Force Base has been at the forefront of national defense. Beginning in 1988, massive construction created new buildings designed for B-2 operations and maintenance. The first deployment of the B-2 Advanced Technology Bomber, the Air Force’s premier weapon system, was at Whiteman. On 1 Feb 2010, the 509th Bomb Wing at Whiteman Air Force Base became part of the newly created Air Force Global Strike Command. The 509 BW operates the Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, designed to be employed to strike high-value targets that are either out of range of conventional aircraft or considered to be too heavily defended for conventional aircraft to strike without a high risk of loss.
Whiteman AFB is the only permanent base for the B-2 stealth bomber. Whiteman can launch combat sorties directly from Missouri to any part of the globe, engaging adversaries with nuclear or conventional weapon payloads. The 509th Bomb Wing first flew the B-2 in combat against Serbia in March 1999.
Other aircraft assigned to Whiteman include the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II ground-attack fighter; the Northrop T-38 Talon jet trainer, and the Boeing AH-64 Apache attack helicopter.

The back nine was built in the late 1990’s.
