A stock aircraft called Northrop YB-49. Built with 415 of the finest parts, its root part is MK1Fuselage.

Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.1.3.

The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed by Northrop Corporation shortly after World War II for service with the U.S. Air Force. The YB-49 featured a flying wing design and was a jet-powered development of the earlier piston model XB-35.

The YB-49 never entered production, being passed over in favor of the more conventional Convair B-36 piston-driven design. Design work performed in the development of the YB-35 and YB-49 nonetheless proved to be valuable to Northrop decades later in the eventual development of the B-2 stealth bomber, which entered service in the early 1990s.

This is my second version of this aircraft, this one though is much much much better!
It is designed with the original specifications and features less lagg than my last one and it also features POV vision because there is a cabin placed in the front of the wing.

Start off by setting the main controls on the Sputnik Module located in the middle between the wings (the grey ball) by right-clicking on it and set control.
Then enable SAS.
Now to the important stuff, pitch the aircraft like you are going up the whole time you take off otherwise it will turn to the side and crash (i have tried everything to fix this but i cant find the error) and balance it with rudder controls so it goes straight.
When you feel like the SAS has taken over the control and the aircraft lifts, you fly it normally.
The same thing comes when landing it, use parking brakes and put the throttle to zero then steer it using the rudders.
This airplane tends to go to the sides easily when taking off
