  1. This is not how it happened. The f-117 flew the same flight path for weeks. Yugo had spotters watching the US base. They estimated when the f-117 was in the areas after take off. And no surface to air missle,it was brought down by multiple ZSU-23-4 shooting randomly in the air.

    Lucky shot

  2. Spec op pilots go through the same e and e training that special forces like the SAS, SRR, SEALS, DELTA go through as their risk of being shot down is hugely high as they are the guys and gals who need to get the operators to the first CP

  3. It wasnt acualy the bombbay that let us detect it. On the edges of the airplane (tips of the wings and such) the coating was damaged and the radar operator barely recognized it as a plane and almost no one beilived him

  4. With an old russian radar detector plus an intelligent solder solve the plane. Not Yugoslav ,they were Serbs and the leader soldier was an Hungarian nationality major who was born in Yugoslavia. They left there everything.

  5. The thing with Stealth aircraft is its not the angles and all the high tech that is what keeps an aircraft "invisible" but it is also how you choose to fly against the radar stations. Obviously there was some mishap on that regard as the aircraft was detected

  6. "Један од вас упалио је стари руски радар на 6 секунди и ракетом из музеја С125 разгузио авион од 150 милиона долара. Ви сте свет!"

  7. They shoot it down because USA was overconfident.
    That plane was going the same route, at the same time, day in and day out.
    Balkan people are smart, we see things like that and find a way to use it.

    USA stopped doing regular flights, having regular timeline and regular path afterwards.
