Return of the Nighthawk: Now It’s Official
Two F-117s have deployed to Fresno to train with the California ANG, affording the public its first view of the aircraft since its 2008 "retirement".
One of the F-117s is seen on arrival at Fresno. Both aircraft wore the ‘TR’ tailcode associated with Tonopah Test Range airfield. An F-117 had earlier been seen with the "Dark Knights" unit name, and the aircraft uses the "Knight" callsign. (Photo: Capt. Jason Sanchez/Air National Guard)
