I have read where 1 F-23 is being restored at the Air Force Museum in Dayton Ohio to be placed on display. And the other was taken from the museum in California and being studied again by NASA and Northrup maybe for a future US bomber design. I hope this info is correct. The F-23 was such a beauty.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat March 25, 2006:
Has anyone heard about the desktop model that appeared for sale on E-bay and was quickly removed from sale showing a FB-23 bomber version (larger wing) the report said that one of the 2 prototypes had been taken back by Northrop for testing?
