This is a sad scene to look at even in picture form.

Shameful. I hope they saved some of them for museums.

Five aircraft were placed in museums including the first 4 YF-117As and some remains of the F-117 shot down over Serbia. Through 2009, one F-117 has been scrapped. F-117 AF Ser. No. 79-0784 was scrapped at the Palmdale test facility on 26 April 2008. It was the last F-117 at Palmdale and was scrapped to test an effective method for destroying F-117 airframes.

Although officially retired, the F-117 fleet remains intact and photos show the aircraft carefully mothballed.F-117s have been spotted flying in the Nellis Bombing Range as recently as 2013.

The U.S. Air Force has done the same with the C-5 at ARMAC some years ago. The end result was a savings to the tax payers in the use of recycled parts from those aircraft.
