The single seat Nighthawk (Lockheed F-117A) was the first actual operational aircraft to demonstrate stealth technology. It has a top speed of 648 MPH. The decision to produce the F-117A was made on 1 November 1978, and a contract was awarded to Lockheed Advanced Development Projects, popularly known as the Skunk Works, Lockheeds secretive facility in Burbank, CA. It was retired in 2008.
The Nighthawk F-117A Model is crafted from pressure cast composite resin, and is a striking aviation gift with its impressive looks. This authentic, extraordinary replica of the original aircraft has been faithfully reproduced using exact blueprint specifications. Each model is meticulously hand painted giving the aircraft a deep, rich finish. The result is a museum quality sculpture to be admired, and proudly put on display. The model requires minor assembly as the wings need to be inserted into the fuselage. A handsome display base is included.
