Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk
@ Nellis Air Force Base, Las Vegas NV
Taken during my first visit to the Aviation Nation event outside of Las Vegas, this is the first time I photographed an operational F-117. First flown in 1981, the fleet of stealthy aircraft was retired in 2008. Sixty-four F-117s were built, 59 of which were production versions with the other five being demonstrators/prototypes. Nikon Coolpix 4500, processed with Aperture.
