Well if that's the case, then why don't we all just name some random plane. If we think it then it obviously exists!

The T-38 was used as a chase by NASA, and for some Air Force projects, but the ones out of Holloman were used as trainers.

Trainers for what? Are the Holoman T-38 any different from a stock T-38. My understanding of the F-117 is they never had a real two-seater trainer. It was just train on the simulator then baptism by fire.

They were used for LIFT training, but now the ones at Holloman play Aggressor for the F-22s. I remembered them being used as trainers from there, but I hadn't kept up with the T-38 in a long time. My brother flew in one with the ROTC program one summer from Holloman.

Three of the Holloman aircraft are AT-38s. They have a centerline pylon that allows them to carry pods, and weapons. They belong to a test and evaluation unit that flies over White Sands evaluating different systems. The T-38s for awhile were used as trainers before the F-117s went there. There was no actual F-117 trainer aircraft (two seat F-117), similar to how the A-10, F-22, and eventually F-35 won't have an actual trainer. When the F-117 pilots were qualifying, they used T-38s as chase planes to help them out. The T-38 was also used to get landing currency prior to going to Tonopah for computer and simulator training.

I have to admit, that grey one is just down right sexy!

Yes, Have Blue is aesthetically speaking more attractive than F-117.

But take a look at this german stealth project: MBB Lampyridae (from early 1980´s)

www.rp-one.net...

There is a saying that Tacit Blue was flight tested (the kind that never happened) as near as less than 40 miles from soviet airspace between Siberia and Alasca. And it was not detected by the soviets.
