The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is a single-seat, twin-engine stealth ground-attack aircraftformerly operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) developed from the Have Bluetechnology demonstrator and produced by Lockheed's Skunk Works. It is the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. The maiden flight of the F-117 happened in 1981 and the aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in October 1983. The Nighthawk spent much of its early service life shrouded in secrecy, until it was revealed to the world in November 1988.

The F-117 was widely publicized for its role in the Gulf War of 1991. It was commonly referred to as the "Stealth Fighter", although it was a strictly ground-attack aircraft. F-117s took part in the conflict in Yugoslavia where one was shot down by a surface-to-air missile (SAM) on 27 March 1999, the only Nighthawk to be lost in combat. The Air Force retired the F-117 on 22 April 2008, primarily due to the fielding of the F-22 Raptor. Sixty-four F-117s were built, 59 of which were production versions with the other five being demonstrators/prototypes.
