F-117 Nighthawk.

I worked at Lockheed for over 37 years. They used to hold annual family days where our family and friends could visit the plant. They held them in Burbank, CA before that plant shut down and then held them in Palmdale, CA at the Skunk Works. This is a full-sized F-117 Nighthawk, the plane that won the first Gulf War. The jet was completely unknown to the public until that night in January 1991 during Desert Storm. It was retired in 2008.

  1. I had neighbors in our town whose oldest daughter was on the design team. She couldn't tell them for a couple years after it had come out.


I appreciate your comments.
