{detailed description}The F-117 Stealth aircraft used in the Gulf War introduced a dramatic new factor into modern air combat - the ability to fly undetected over enemy territory to spy or to strike. Yet another era in the long history of warfare was being ushered in: a high-tech war conducted with devastating effect, from the air - unseen.
This is Stealth provides an up-to-the-minute, pictorial overview of the two new combat aircraft types currently revolutionizing air warfare. The F-117 Stealth single-seat attack aircraft, developed in ultra-secrecy at Lockheed's 'Skunk Works', features spectacularly new faceted aerodynamics -flat surfaces and angular edges to disrupt and evade radar. The hugely expensive Northrop B-2, the manned bomber element of the nuclear strategic triad, is just as novel in design, with no vertical fins and an ultra-smooth silhouette that makes it almost impossible to detect in profile.
Stunningly illustrated with top-class photographs - many never previously published - this book by leading specialist aviation photographer Erik Simonsen portrays in graphic detail the `invisible' aircraft now in service with the United States Air Force.
