    Lockheed F-117A "Nighthawk"
    81-0796 "Fatal Attraction", 415th TFS, Desert Storm 1991
    HOBBY MASTER COLLECTOR
    In the 1970_s Soviet air defense systems improved and the U.S. realized they had to develop
    aircraft to counter this. Lockheed Skunk Works was tasked with the job and two aircraft were built
    under the code name "Have Blue" that proved stealth aircraft could be produced. As a result the
    F-117 Nighthawk was developed and first flew in 1981 with the first production F-117 80-10785
    making its maiden flight on April 20, 1982 but it wasn_t until 1988 that the Pentagon confirmed its
    existence.

    Formerly known as the 4450th Tactical Squadron it was re-designated the 415th TFS on October
    5, 1989 and equipped with the Lockheed F-114A. F-117A 81-10796 c/n A4021 "Fatal Attraction"
    was the 12th production aircraft and was accepted by the USAF August 4, 1983. In August 1990
    "Fatal Attraction" was one of 22 F-117As sent to Saudi Arabia as part of Operation Desert Shield.
    As part of the 415th TFS/37th TFW(P) during Operation Desert Storm Captain Dan DeCamp flew
    81-10796 on 29 missions. On January 25, 2008 "Fatal Attraction" was retired.
