I got to see an F-117 up close at the Edwards AFB air show just a week later. As we walked in we passed a spot which was double-roped and had something I'd read about in recent issue of Aviation Week And Space Technology.

It was a modified fold-up ladder that AW&ST had pointed out as an example of low-cost engineering used on the F-117 program. I made a mental note to come back to that spot when it was time for the F-117 to arrive.

When the time came we headed back there and had the Nighthawk taxi in right in front of us and we were able to get some great, up-close photos of the jet. I just wish I could find those photos today.
