Final F-117A Leaves Palmdale

Just after 10:00 am today, the last F-117A, aircraft #831, took off from Palmdale's Runway 25 three days ahead of schedule. After a couple of low passes over Lockheed Martin's Skunk Works, 831 left the Antelope Valley for the last time, enroute to Tonopah, Nevada, and its place in history as the last Nighthawk to fly. May she rest in peace.
