F-117
"NightHawk"
The F-117 is the only heavily guarded aircraft on display. Air Force guards toting pistols and M-16s keep visitors at least 30 feet away from the still-classified Stealth bomber.
No matter how many times I see it fly, it still looks like it could never get off the ground.
An infrared missile doesn't have much to track at this angle.
These next few photos are actually from the 1998 show (same base). I happened to walk up as they were towing the F-117 out to the flightline for it's demonstration.
In case you've never realized just how big this baby is, take a look at the crewman riding in the cockpit.
The Stealth looks just as amazing being towed as it does in the air!
