No picture in the air. Did it really fly?

If you have not been to the National Museum of the United States Air Force, you must go! Truly an inspiration and amazing place!

I've seen the Bird of Prey at the US Air Force Museum in Dayton. Its hanging from the ceiling right above the test copy of the F-22 Raptor. Every aviation fan in the world should make it to the US Air Force Museum in the states once in their life. Words can't describe it.

The intake is behind the pilots head! Too scary for me. Great contribution!

I honestly thought this was just a small assembled part of a fighter , ready to have its wings and fins attached. Pretty cool.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Mon September 13, 2010:
Wow, Does that thing fly? Looks like some drawing in an old book of how things "are" (were) going to look in the year 2000. :-)

A visitor from United States posted Tue May 11, 2010:
This shape is the exact same shape of the plane from the movie "Stealth".

A visitor from - posted Sun November 22, 2009:
It looks kind of like what i saw in the sky over chelsea the only difference no worm hole like trail is fallowing it from behind

A visitor from United States posted Wed April 15, 2009:
Very smooth surface finish on this aircraft results in exceptional stealth capabilities second to none. It is probably the most stealthy aircraft known. RCS is smaller or comparable to a mosquito!
