From the Publisher

“This book details the heraldry of the Stealth Fighter beginning 10 years prior to its history-making flights over Baghdad during Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. It includes actual photos of many rare F-117A patches produced only for those intimately involved in the F-117A Program. Information dealing with the development of these patches and explaining their symbology are provided. It’s also about the people and comaraderie involved. As a bonus, this book contains history and lineage of patches produced during the Lockheed Product Excellence Program’s existence for the Engineering and Manufacturing organizations concealed deep within the walls of the highly secretive Skunk Works.”
