Stealth fighters are not flying anymore - they are retired.
This picture was taken 2 weeks ago in the Smokey mountians.

The military's F-117 fleet may have been decommissioned, but Lockheed Martin still retains five aircraft that were used in the early days of the program for testing.

It is possible that one or more of those early aircraft could still be used for testing purposes (as a testbed for other systems).

Thats is incorect, Locheed does not 5 F117 test aircraft. Or I should say not flyable ones anyway, All F117s including test articles are stored at TTR. One test article was sadly demolished at palmdale using a backhoe, One of the five is on display at Palmdale with engine and everything topsecret taken off, thats actaully includes scraping the topsecret coating and removing the real windshield that had a TS coating, another one is on display in a museam and the other are in storage with plans to be made ready for display at other museums.

The DARPA Falcon seems the most logical match to me, I am a newbie to advanced aircraft but having studied all the possible matches the shape looks like the Falcon to me. Kudos to Bios' friend for managing to capture this thing in a snapshot, considering the speed you say it was going it could easily have been missed! Great thread
