THE INSANE ENGINEERING OF THE F-117 NIGHTHAWK...

The Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk is a groundbreaking stealth attack aircraft developed by Lockheed Martin for the United States Air Force. Known for being the world's first operational aircraft designed specifically with stealth technology, the F-117 revolutionized modern aerial warfare with its innovative design to reduce radar cross-section.


The guys at Real Engineering investigate how the plane was designed, based on a faceted design inspired by a Soviet mathematician's paper and the challenges the Skunkworks team faced to get 'The Hopeless Diamond' off the drawing board and into the sky.
