    AF is giving away F-117 Nighthawks

    A dozen to museums.

    The Reagan library is getting one.

    This link has a short video of Skunk Works preparing the Reagan Library display. During its service life, Unexpected Guest was the most active of the F-117s, flying a total of 78 combat missions, more than all other Nighthawks.

    Cool

    The best flight sim, EVER! Had a BLAST with this in college.

    Wonder if that’s why they have been spotted flying around lately. AF moving them to be decommissioned and stripped of classified stuff for museums

    They're old enough that I'd be shocked if they didn't. They were retired over a decade ago after 25 years in service, so it's not like they're cutting edge anymore.
    ...they should have seen that arms in their citizens' hands could not make them tyrants, but that evil orders of government make a city tyrannize. Since they had a good government, they did not have to fear their own arms.
