WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Air Force Secretary Deborah James, unveiling the first image of a new Northrop Grumman Corp long-range bomber on Friday, said it would be designated the B-21.

James revealed the first artist's rendering of the secret bomber, an angular flying wing, at the Air Force Association's annual Air Warfare Symposium. She said the name of the new warplane would be chosen with the help of service members.
