Brad Sorenson was an aerospace designer who went to the Norton Air Force Base in 1988 for an air show. The event was a chance for companies and government agencies to show off new technology. He was hoping to connect with potential clients. At some point, Brad got separated from his group.
After he got separated from his group, Brad went to a large hangar to watch a presentation by a three-star general. At first, Brad thought he was in the right place when he saw the usual list of top-secret aircraft. However, the general suddenly pulled a curtain and revealed three brand new airplanes.
