F-117 to be Retired

The US Air Force is retiring the F-117 Stealth fighter after 27 years. Chances are that they are getting too expensive to maintain. Yet, their replacement, the F-22, is expensive just to buy, let alone maintain. They will be mothballed in Nevada instead of Davis-Monthan AFB. The Air Force didn't get near the work out of them they got out of the SR-71s. I wonder what the ROI is for this black program.
