On Oct. 3, a Stealth Fighter F-117 arrives at Palm Springs Air Museum, where it will be welcomed into the permanent collection. The museum is organizing a Stealth Fighter F-117 Exclusive Arrival Party to welcome the aircraft. Limited availability tickets are $117 each that includes boxed appetizers, beverage, meet and greet with a F-117 pilot, and commemorative t-shirts. The F-117 will be welcomed with a formal military retirement ceremony, including water arch. This will be the only chance to see this aircraft for many months. It goes into restoration and will not be seen for at least a year.
The Palm Springs Air Museum contains over 60 vintage aircraft from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War contained in 86,000 square feet of open hangars and on the tarmac.
