STEALTH OPERATIONS DECLASSIFIED: HISTORY - PROTOTYPES - TECHNOLOGY.

Stealth revolutionised the way air wars are fought. It was developed in the ʽdeep black worldʼ where security passes, retina eye scanners and ID cards are a way of life for those who create, test and fly these classified aircraft in remote sites. Often the jets only break cover when their unique capabilities are required in combat or for a particular high-risk mission.

This 100-page special publication, from the team behind AirForces Monthly magazine, examines the operational missions of such types as the Lockheed Martinʼs F-117, Northrop Grummanʼs B-2 Spirit, and the next generation of ʽstealthyʼ aircraft such as Lockheed Martinʼs F-22A Raptor. All of these aircraft have been in combat – how effective were they? We also look into the ''black world'' and report on America's secret programmes at Area 51, many of which areyet to be declassified.
