    yea, theres not many "dumb" bombs used today, especially when targets are located near civilians.

    What do you mean by the above comment, now all bombs are either Laser guided or GPS. I would think the transport(F-117,B-2) have little to do about it.

    Not them! They are only about 22 years old +? Bye-bye Nighthawk. Not a single plane can do bombing as accurate as the F-117. I will miss you, in 2008.

    I would love to go to a Red Flag once in my life. I've seen some amazing pictures from the current one in progress.

    Morning was a bad time to take this shot. I should have spent more time walking around Nellis Sunday at the airshow. They had already towed it away by the time I got down there.





    We got to see 2 of them fly in from the range on Friday while we were walking around media day.

    Too bad, have always been a fan of the Nighthawks, sad to see them go. Oh well, hope some of them will be sold to Pima Air&Space Museum in Tucson, would fit in right beside the SR-71.

    Just seems like such a large waste of money in a short time.
    Will these aircraft be stripped of all the secret stuff onboard these crafts ?

    My thoughts exactly..... I never thought they were that old..... If they kept the F-117 under wraps for so long, imagine what those cats are building today, that we don't know about.....

    Well from what I heard the F-22 is more stealth than the F-117. The F-117 is outdated and ugly. The F-22 will be capible of carrying bombs correct? Even though the pure bomb version (FB-22) will probably never be built.
