Good Bye Stealth Bomber...

Holloman Air Force Base celebrating farewell on Monday (28/4) to the F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter, which the nation is retiring from its arsenal after 27 years.

Holloman had been the only base to have the stealths since the squadron moved in mid-1992 to southern New Mexico from Tonopah.

The Air Force decided to accelerate the F-117s' retirement to free funding to modernize the rest of the fleet. The Nighthawk is being replaced by the F-22 Raptor, which also has stealth technology.@lutsista
