At the Western Museum of Flight. This is the prototype YF-17 that lost in a fly-off competition to the GD F-16 when the USAF was shopping for their newest flighter at the time. The USN liked the YF-17 and eventually bought a ton of them, later redesignated as the McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet in 1976.
