Anyone interested in this should hit Amazon ASAP for the book “Skunk Works” by Lockheed’s Ben Rich. It’s an amazing look at a piece of our history.

I concur... Not only for the F-117, but the SR-71 as well... The explanation of the “plunger” in the engine intake that allowed the aircraft to operate at high speeds and altitudes is incredible. Skunk Works is a book for anyone interested in military/aviation history.

Bump. Stealth came from the Soviets! But the Ruskies were too stupid to know what they had. Capitalism vs. Communism. (tagline brought ot you by...the Soviets)
