I need some info for my science project on stealth technology. Can anybody who is an F-117 pilot or very knowlegable about this aircraft help me? Thanks!

Not sure what your looking for but, I doubt that an F-117 pilot is going to come on a public worldwide website and discuss stealth technology since most of it is classified.

Anything he could publicly discuss could probably be found easily at your local bookstore or online book stores.

You could also do a search for Kelly Johnson and the skunk works.

Just a thought.

I will happily e-mail you what you want, but you don't seem to have an e-mail address. Furthermore expect a mega-size download that could take ± 40 minutes.

E-mail me if you are interested - up to you........

Read a very good book entitled "Skunk Works" about the team behind stealth technology.

I'm sure if there were any F-117 pilots they wouldn't be talking about the US' most secretive fighter to you now would they

The Swichblade and Aurora are our most secretive aircraft that we know about

Speaking of Switchblade and Aurora, did anybody see the Popular Science or Mechanics article about them. They sound to good to be true. Also, Aurora and Switchblade don't "technically" exist.

"They've long had a habit of publishing what are little more than tarted up tabloid articles on supposed fantastic technology." - Tim Gueguen, rec.aviation.military, on the Popular Science article about the "switchblade." Search deja.com for 'Popular Science "Switchblade" article'

Check out http://www.randf.com/ and try asking the rec.aviation.military newsgroup. They (the newsgroup) will probably direct you to a good web site about it.

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.
