The highlight for me at the 2007 Langley show was getting to spend the weekend with the F-117A Demonstration Team from the 49th Fighter Wing.  I was able to witness the pre-flight and start-up of the F-117 demonstration from the hot ramp!  I also had the privilege to get up-close and personal with the aircraft (as up-close and personal as was allowed!).  Special thanks to Liza Eckardt and the Production Superintendent of the F-117A Demonstration Team, Technical Sergeant Nathan Knox.
