F-117 Nighthawk Wooden Model
Military Mahogany is proud to offer this F-117 wooden model to our series of beautiful hand crafted models.The F-117 Nighthawk was a stealth ground attack aircraft formerly operated by the United States Air Force. The F-117A's first flight was in 1981, and it achieved Initial Operational Capability status in October 1983. The F-117A was "acknowledged" and revealed to the world in November 1988. As a product of the Skunk Works and a development of the Have Blue prototype, it became the first operational aircraft initially designed around stealth technology.
The F-117A was widely publicized during the Gulf War of 1991. The Air Force retired the F-117 on 22 April 2008 primarily due to the acquisition and eventual deployment of the more effective F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II.
