Plane type:  F-117 Nighthawk
 
Developed during an ultra-secret ‘black project’, by Lockheed’s secretive Skunk Works division, the F-117 became operational in 1983 but was shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed to the public in 1988.
 
With a maximum speed of 684 mph, it was designed specifically for night-time ground attack and was the first operational aircraft to be designed with stealth technology to avoid radar detection. In fact its development was kept so classified that very few people at Lockheed and the Pentagon knew the program even existed.
 
Known as the Stealth Fighter this revolutionary aircraft carried out many significant missions 25 during its 25 years of service including Operations Just Cause, Desert Storm, Joint Guard and Enduring Freedom. During the 1991 Gulf War alone the F-117 flew 1,300 sorties scoring direct hits on 1,600 high-value targets without losing a single aircraft.
 
The F-117 was officially retired in 2008, although a number are kept in a state of readiness, and this iconic fighter remains one of the most distinctive and ground-breaking aircraft in the history of aviation.
 
Our Bonus Signatures:
 
Ben Rich - Ben was the second director of Lockheed's Skunk Works from 1975 to 1991, succeeding its founder, Kelly Johnson. Regarded as the "father of stealth," Ben Rich was responsible for leading the development of the F-117, the first production stealth aircraft. He also participated in various design aspects of the F-104, U-2, SR-71, A-12, and F-22 among others. 
 
Harold C. Farley - A Fellow of the Society of Experimental Test Pilots, Harold Farley's flying career spans some thirty years during which he has logged almost 6,000 hours, 3,600 hours of which were flight tests in fighter or attack aircraft. Harold joined Lockheed in 1979 as an experimental test pilot assigned as Project Pilot for the then top secret Stealth Fighter Program. He participated in all phases of the F-117 project and logged over 600 hours in the aircraft. Hal Farley became Director of Flight Operations and Chief Test Pilot of the Lockheed Advanced Development Company in 1989; he retired from Lockheed in 1991.
