 Product Description

Signature: Harold C. Farley & Ben Rich

Plane Type: F-117 Nighthawk

F-117 Nighthawk - An outgrowth of the Have Blue prototype, the subsonic F-117 stealth fighter used low observable technology as its defensive weapon, and offered ordinance delivery with pin-point accuracy for its offensive capability. Having flown for 25 years in front line service with the USAF Air Combat Command, the Nighthawk represented the most advanced weapons system in the world today. Combat proven in Operation Desert Storm, F-117's were consistently used to seek and destroy high priority targets, primarily on night missions. Capable of carrying a 5,000 lb. payload in its twin internal bays, the Nighthawk measured 66ft. in length, and was powered by two General Electric F-404 non-afterburning turbofan engines. The Nighthawk was retired from service April 22, 2008. A total of 59 F-117s were built.
