The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is an American single-seat, twin-engine stealth attack aircraft that was developed by Lockheed's secretive Skunk Works division and operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The F-117 was based on the Have Blue technology demonstrator.
The Nighthawk was the first operational aircraft to be designed around stealth technology. Its maiden flight took place in 1981 at Groom Lake, Nevada, and the aircraft achieved initial operating capability status in 1983. The Nighthawk was shrouded in secrecy until it was revealed to the public in 1988. Of the 64 F-117s built, 59 were production versions, with the other five being prototypes.
The F-117 was widely publicized for its role in the Persian Gulf War of 1991. Although it was commonly referred to as the "Stealth Fighter", it was strictly a ground-attack aircraft.
Inspired by this oddly mesmerizing F-117, we would like to design our own parkjet that inherits any possible scale lines of the F-117, including the airfoil, which no one has done it before in a parkjet platform.
Under Rhinoceros 6.0, we finally managed to visualize the depron model of the F-117, as a rear mounted design.
It's so unique that it made three of us felt we would like to build it immediately
From the nose tip, nacelles, all surface angles, airfoil, down to the jet thrusters, we tried to follow the scale lines from some blueprints we got from the web.
Stay tuned for further progress, everyone. This is gonna be an exciting project for us all
