1982 - 1985: The Northrop Tacit Blue experimental stealth aircraft

“The Northrop Tacit Blue was created to demonstrate that a stealth surveillance aircraft could operate close to the line of battle with a high degree of survivability.

“Northrop engineer John Cashen was quoted in 1996 as having said, “You’re talking about an aircraft that at the time was arguably the most unstable aircraft man had ever flown.””
