One of the most interesting planes they have is the YF-23A “Black Widow II” PAV-2.
It was the Northrop/McDonnell Douglas team’s entry into the ATF (Advanced Tactical Fighter) competition. The four-way ATF competition pitted the Northrop/McDonnell Douglas YF-23A “Black Widow II” team against the Lockheed/Boeing/General Dynamics YF-22A “Lightning II” team. The Pratt & Whitney YF119 engine competed with the General Electric YF120 engine. At the end of the competition, the YF-22A “Lightning II” and the Pratt & Whitney YF119 engine were the winners.
They have made a great YouTube Video about the plane:
Some of the other planes exhibited are:
- North American F-86 Sabre Jet
- Northrop YF-17 “Cobra” (Prototype #1)
- Grumman F-14A “Tomcat”
- Northrop F-5A “Freedom Fighter”
- Douglas A-4A Skyhawk
- British Aerospace Harrier T.4 Jump Jet
- Northrop JB-1 “Bat” World War II “Buzz Bomb” built in 1942. There are only three of Jack Northrop’s flying wings left in the world. This is one of them!
