Viper is its common nickname, officially it's named the Fighting Falcon.

Must be a stealth variant of the F/A-18 Hornet.

The YF-17 never entered production. Two airf4rames were built as demonstrators, but ultimately the program was shut down after losing to the YF-16 Cobra, now called the F-16 Fighting Falcon.

Oh god. Thanks for the correction, DJ. I had to do a project on Lockheed Martin for School. I've had the YF-16 on thebrain since,and Viper popped into myhead when I was typing. Stupid schoolprojects on inferior planes... :P

No. This is the prototype used in the Air Force competition for a Light Weight Fighter, where it lost to the F-16.

Well, years of online searches, documentaries, and reading books about aircraft has taught me much.

I see. Book smarts are cool, but nothing compares to seeing them up close.

Well my grandfather worked at the nearby Air Force base, so we got into the air shows and of course saw the tankers stationed there, along with the B-1B Lancers when they were here.

... Which AFB? The closest I ever got was three feet from a CF-18 at CFB Cold Lake.
