Safely destroying an F-117 is not easy. Some may remember the a/c lost at an airshow in Maryland in 1997. A couple dozen local first responders were hospitalized due to respiratory issues as a result of inhaling a combination of carbon fiber particulates and off gassing (from coatings) caused by the burning a/c. At least a few of those first responders suffered long term effects as a result. Crash/rescue procedures for the F-117 were modified by AFCEC guys at Tyndall as a result of this mishap.
