In October 1991 the 415th TFS was re-designated the 49th FW and located at Holloman AFB, New Mexico. Salata became the CO of the 49th FW/OG/9th FS "Flying Knights". F-117A 86-0839 took part in the August 2006 Oceana Naval Air Station air show marked as the Commander's aircraft.

Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk

Designed and developed by Lockheed, the F-117 was the first operational aircraft conceived with stealth technology. It first flew on June 18, 1981, but was not officially acknowledged until 1988, when the Pentagon released a grainy, unrevealing photograph to the media (the aircraft itself was not seen by the public until 1990). With no afterburners and a shape designed to deflect radar signals, the F-117 is subsonic but effective. It has an automated planning system, sophisticated navigation and infrared target acquisition. It has been used several times in combat, most notably during the Persian Gulf War. It was retired in 2008, replaced by the more formidable F-22.
