Found a site that talks about the F-117, including a page that lists all current aircraft and ones that were lost.

B-17G Fortress “Mizpah” took a direct AAA hit in the nose on mission to Budapest, 14 July 1944. Two men were killed instantly but the pilot held her level long enough for crew to get out and become POW's. The aircraft crashed near Dunavecse, Hungary.

It's a great museum.  Was there a couple of years ago with my son's boy scout troop.  Need to get back down there, since they've expanded since then.
