In the mid-1980's there were rumors of a stealth fighter jet being used by the military but noone had ever seen it. Before the F-117 was acknowledged in the press and finally viewed by the public, lots of conjecture existed about what a stealth plane really looked like.

Model maker Testors created the F-19 using a best guess of how the technology should look. Software maker Microprose created the F-19 Stealth Fighter game from the model. Based largely on the wildly successful F-15 Strike Eagle simulator, you had choices of many different missions. This screen gallery relives those adventures.

Here's the opening splash screen from when you started F-19 Stealth Fighter.
