Remark Photographer
79-10782 / ED (cn A.4007) How happy everybody was to see this beautifully painted Stealth during this amazing display. And it was a once in a lifetime experience, since this fully hand made prototype was wearing this scheme for the 2nd and last time of its career, after the Edwards show it has been transferred from Palmdale to Holloman and will be used as a ground test bed only in the future. This aircraft suffered also a landing accident back in Jan 82, when it recovered onto a bed of foam, following the loss of the nosewheel.

First, this is a fantastic photo, which can never be taken again. I absolutely LOVE it!

Second, to the individual who commented "I don't usually think the U.S. flag is "pretty"....... I would like to suggest that you move to someplace else where their flag is more to your "taste". ( We won't miss you! ) Charley

It's just an amazing combination of shape and colors! ;)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon May 10, 2010:
One of the reasons it has been retired was one was shot down during the bombing raid over Serbia back in 1999. Detected by one old low-frequency russian radar, two rockets launched, one hit the target. Remains of the plane are on display in Air Museum at belgrade Airport.

The Stars and Stripes looks amazing at any sight, but even more so on the belly of this Nighthawk! Wish I could have seen it in person!
