The F-117 is classified, but I think the X-32 and X-35 (the new JSF fighters that recently flew) are more classified, despite the fact that we know what they look like, their systems are probably highly classified. Same with the F-22 and B-2. At any airshow where a F-117 appears on static display, there are at least five armed guards around it, and you can't get closer that 30 ft. to the cockpit.
