Navy Strike Aircraft

Matt and his Navy strike aircraft design in the Northrop 7 X 10 wind tunnel.
This was a really fun program for me.  This was a program started by the Navy after the demise of the A-12 program.
I had the great pleasure of working with Dick Scherrer, one of the patent holders on the F117 Stealth Fighter.
Dick was hired as a consultant on this project and I was just a young engineer so it was a great thrill for me to work with him.
Of course I had all the Northrop greats from the B-2 and ATF projects.
Unfortunately for me, Northrop did not bid this project as prime, would not have mattered, the program was a dead end.
