Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk 0835 “The Dragon” first flew on June 30, 1988. During the Gulf War #0835 carried out twenty six combat missions with the 416th TFS. In 2003 #0835 was painted gray; hence the Gray Dragon, to test the effectiveness of a color other than black. The standard F-117 black scheme helped with stealth at night, but was poor in sunlight, so it was flown twice daily to test the 24 hour stealth presence. Before any conclusions had been reached the F-117 Nighthawk fleet was retired.

The F-117 Nighthawk is a twin-engine attack aircraft built by Lockheed for the U.S Air Force and the first operational military aircraft designed using stealth technology. The F-117 was first flown on June 18, 1981 and achieved initial operating capability in 1983. F-117’s took part in the 1991 Gulf War and Operation Allied Force in Yugoslavia, where one was downed by a surface-to-air missile (SAM) on March 27, 1999. It was the only Nighthawk lost in combat. The F-117 was also used during Operation Enduring Freedom in 2001 and Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003. Of the 64 F-117s built, 59 were production versions. The U.S. Air Force retired the F-117 in 2008.
