Federal agents searched Northrop's B-2 bomber plant in Pico Rivera on Feb. 15, an indication that the government has escalated a criminal investigation into the controversial $70-billion program. A federal warrant was issued for agents to conduct the search at the Pico Rivera facility where B-2 parts are produced, Northrop spokesman Tony Cantafio said Wednesday in response to an inquiry by The Times.

After a night of New Year's Eve reveling, Pasadena residents will get a morning wake-up call Wednesday so they don't miss the start of the Rose Parade.

The massive, black, bat-like B-2 Stealth bomber will make its first-ever Los Angeles flyover next weekend, as part of the Van Nuys Airport Aviation Expo '96, which runs July 13 and 14.

Pentagon spending is expected to continue its downward spiral in the next several years, but some defense contractors--including major employers in Southern California--fared exceptionally well in the federal budget proposal made public Monday. Although Defense Department procurement would plunge 21% in fiscal 1992 from the current year, the Northrop B-2 bomber and the McDonnell Douglas C-17 cargo jet are slated for full funding for production in the budget.
