Title: Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk

The Lockheed F-117A was the winner of a stealth aircraft contest first started in 1975. The prototype “Have Blue” aircraft first flew in 1978, and the actual F-117 prototype, larger and incorporating various design changes first flew in 1981. In spite of considerable press speculation the aircraft was successfully kept secret until it was officially unveiled in 1988. The aircraft were used operationally in several high-profile operations including Desert Storm and Bosnia, but were retired from service in 2008.
