The Northrop YF-23 or Northrop–McDonnell Douglas YF-23 was an American single-seat, twin-engine fighter aircraft designed for the United States Air Force (USAF). The design was a finalist in the USAF's Advanced Tactical Fighter (ATF) competition, battling the Lockheed YF-22 for a production contract. Two YF-23 prototypes were built with the nicknames "Black Widow II" and "Gray Ghost". Lost out to the lockheed F22 Raptor,

    Hi Tom, I just saw the F22 air show at the 2014 Sun and Fun. I got to talk to the pilot and he was excellent. I have always loved airplanes, but seeing the F22 up close and personal was absolutely amazing.

    Now I'm JEALOUS, what, 3 days at Lakeland Army Airfield, in Lakeland Florida, Girl = LUCKY. I BET it was super cool, like almost "overwhelming" sometimes just being so close to and to be able to touch & really get a GREAT look at those planes:) Well your the expert now Elaine!, I've never been closer to an F-22, or 23 then seeing a low flyover when I was at the hydroplane races in Kennewick, which is on the Columbia river here in Wa, they had a B-1 bomber and Apache helicopter fly over to it was pretty damn cool (even if I couldn't touch em or talk to the pilots!!) Of course I don't know what they have planned here this year, either at the Seattle or Kennewick boat races, 1 thing for sure, theres no place near to land:(:( But the blue angels always do their thing at the Seattle race, & thats always AWESOME! I'm SUPER glad u had the chance at Lakeland Elaine, any other airshows coming near u this summer, lucky girl!!!!? Your Friend Tom Wilson

    The Blue Angels were there too and their performance was spectacular. Even their landing is precise and on point. You can't help be be be in awe of everything they do. I'll be at the Embry Riddle airshow in Daytona, FL later this year. I wish I could go to the 2014 OshKosh but I don't think it's going to happen. Ps. I got an F-22 poster at the show and he pilot and his team autographed it for me. That's my favorite souvenir right now :-)

    Yea, rub it in Elaine!!! :) just kidding, u know out of all the girlfriends Ive had, NOT1 was into planes, they would go to shows if I begged them, but mostly it was to lay back on the lounge chair I carried in for them and get some sun, & if it was even a little cloudy, forget aboutit (that kinda sounded like John travolta huh, fugetaboutit:) I did talk 1 into going to the Seattle flight museum with me(being in the Boeing city, its really cool, really cool, she sat did make up & read some womens mag!. So now I go by myself about every 2 months (that's about how long 4 new exibits & stuff, & I always have a good time, but my neck is always a little sore coming home from looking up so much:), Hold on 2 that signed poster girl!!, & take good care of yourself, & we'll talk soon (LUCKY)......... your friend Tom Wilson!

Afterburner. Makes you sort of wonder how the photo was taken or if it is just another Photoshop product?!
