Memorial Day Coupon Special  Hobby Master 1/72 Air Power Series HA5807 Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk USAF 412th TW, 410th FTS, #85-0831, Area 51, Groom Lake AFB, NV, December 6th 1990, 1/72 Scale Diecast Model, Size: 7.25" Wingspan, 11" Long, Optional Up & Down Landing Gear, Armaments & Display Stand Are Included.

The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is a retired American single-seat, twin-engine stealth attack aircraft that was developed by Lockheed's secretive Skunk Works division and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). It was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. The F-117 was based on the Have Blue technology demonstrator. The Nighthawk's maiden flight took place in 1981 at Groom Lake, Nevada, and the aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in 1983. The aircraft was shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed to the public in 1988. Of the 64 F-117s built, 59 were production versions, with the other five being prototypes. Primary Role: Stealth Attack Aircraft.

The 412th Test Wing / 410th Flight Test Squadron at Edwards AFB were the last units to operate the F-117. F-117A first flew in 1987 and on December 1, 1988 was the first F-117 to test the new OCIP II upgrade. Between November 27 and December 6, 1990 #831 wore a painting of a skunk on its belly as a tribute to the Skunk Works. On December 6, 1990 #831 was flown to Area 51 to celebrate the retirement of the company∆s president Ben Rich. The painting was removed immediately after the event.
