Invisibly Beautiful: Northrop-Loral F-19A Specter
A next-generation, high-speed fighter-interceptor using advanced stealth technology (stayed mainly in concept stages). A wiki-like page on its history can be viewed here:
Update: (from its fictional history)
"A few aircraft were delivered, used for reconnaissance flights over Iraq and Afghanistan in the 80s, but further development was abandoned in favor of other stealth models: F-117 and the B-2." However, it turns out F-19 designation was never used by the military. It's good as fiction, though.
