    i'm wondering what the heck would happen if the people smugglers here got that for 100 K , they could fit 500 on board and charge 10 grand a seat and we'd not know unless we saw it with eyeball mark 1 , as radar would be useless

    Lockheed Martin paid me top dollar for 33 yrs and now pays me and thousands of others nice retirements.......The "Sea Shadow" was a proof of concept that worked very well and much of what was learned is now being applied to new surface assets......Much like the U 2, YF 12, and "F"117; the technology went on to better applications for future weapons............

    Don't bad mouth Lockheed Martin and the many other big defence contractors.......Many thousands of good Americans get nice pay checks and the nation needs the continuous services provided by these companies to maintain a strong defence against this evil world.....

    Well, it is to be totally dismantled. I have heard
    that one of the problems with it was due to severe
    corrosion. As far as a waste of money, we are the
    champs ! Go, U.S.A. !
