Military analyst spotted American F-117 Nighthawk in Reconnaissance Images of China
In 2010 Military analyst Allison Puccioni was going through
Reconnaissance Images of China. In the industrial city of Luoyang she
notice some thing strange
She spotted an abject looking like American F-117 Nighthawk in an industrial complex in China
Intelligence revealed that the object in Luoyang is housed in a facility that develops military targeting systems
Now what would an F-117A Stealth Fighter be doing in China?
The F-117A mockup is sitting at the Electro-Optical Technology Development Center in Luoyang, China. Apparently the center does R&D for Chinese air-to-air missiles.
The image above, captured in March of 2010, depicts an F-117A mockup. The mockup appears to be partially completed, apparently missing the forward fuselage. The picture above is from Google Earth.
The question is, is the plane real or just a model?
