From the article, I located the photo of the cockpit of this work of advanced aviation technology, and took the liberty of identifying many of the components on board for those with untrained eyes. You're welcome.

In the photo of the instrument panel, near the top, is that a cassette deck?

Wow. How quickly the press exposed this photoshop fake!

Easy Peasy...no fuzzy dice hanging in the cockpit.

I’m assuming that on the right side controls, just behind the rows of toggle switches(?) is where you set the beeber to stun.

considering they didn’t photoshop in a pilot.....maybe it can be remotely controlled.

The F-117 was the first generation of stealth. It was not computationally possible to reasonably assess more complex shapes at the time.

Stealth is as much controlling radar reflections to a known point (and then making sure you don’t present a reflection to radars) as anything else. Planform alignment accomplishes this - The F117 “facets” were all aligned to the same point as much as possible - effective and solving a calculational bottleneck. Subsequent generations (B2) still have planform alignment but the fuselage has more complex shapes and coatings.

fun fact:

This was the B2 CTF back in the day, the central courtyard was designed to “sort of” mimic the B2 shape - knowing full well the Soviets would be spending a lot of satellite time focusing on this facility. Someone had a sense of humor by doing this - figuring they’d find out eventually what the shape was, it represented a sort of retroactive “taunt”.

Maybe this was the “skeet” Obama was shooting at.
