  1. Last time I visited the PSAM I went to see the Northrop N9M. Cant wait to see the F-117 up close! Cheers!

  2. Fantastic interview. Always been interested in this jet from the beginning rumors of pilots being bussed from their homes to Tonopah in complete black. We knew something big was coming.
