I recorded an interesting mission last night. Two F-117 (Knight 1, #84-0828 and Knight 2, #84-0824 were flying a mission in R-4807A and possibly R-4809. Refueling was provided by a tanker in the Reveille MOA.

At the end of the mission Knight 1 has an oil pressure failure in the left engine. The pilot shuts down the engine, dumps fuel and eventually lands safely single-engine at TTR.

There are four audio clips of that mission, recorded on different frequencies, at the attached link.

On the boom frequency the receivers identify with their tail numbers upon request from the boom operator.
