Wikipedia: The third YF-117A built (79-0782) "Scorpion 3" is on static display at Holloman Air Force Base, repainted to resemble the first F-117A used to drop weapons in combat. This aircraft was used for acoustics and navigation system testing. While wearing a flag painted on its bottom surface, this aircraft revealed the type's existence to high-ranking officials at Groom Lake on 14 December 1983, the first semi-public unveiling of the aircraft. It was placed on display at Holloman on 5 April 2008.
