B-2 Crash

I found this video at the Alphasim forums and thought you might like a look http://www.patricksaviation.com/videos/checksixx/3289/
Apparantly moisture in the Port Transducer Units during air calculation data distorted the information in the bombers air data system, causing the flight computers to calculate an inaccurate airspeed and a negative angle of attack on takeoff. This caused an "uncommanded 30 degree nose high pitch-up on takeoff causing the aircraft to stall.
The pilot recieved minor injuries and the co-pilot recieved a spinal compression fracture on ejection.
