An experimental F-117 variant, the F-117X Remora was modified to transport personnel with an in-flight docking probe designed to dock with other aircraft in midair. Originally designed to relieve fatigued bombers crews at altitude, this aircraft was used to transport a special operations unit to board a commercial airline which had been highjacked by terrorists.

Behind the scenesEdit

The Remora was inspired by an early F-117 test where the aircraft's stealth was tested by seeing if it could be detected by a 747's collision avoidance radar.[2]
