    US stealth pilot and the Serb who shot him down

    A former US Air Force pilot and the man who shot his stealth plane down during Nato's operation in Serbia have struck a remarkable friendship.

    Breaking bread with the enemy is one thing. Making it together is a step that former foes do not usually take.

    But in Zoltan Dani's kitchen, that is exactly what is happening. Once the commander of a crack Yugoslav anti-aircraft rocket unit, the former colonel has swapped his camouflage for an apron and now runs a successful bakery.

    Even more remarkably, kneading the dough beside him is former United States Air Force pilot, Dale Zelko.

    Great story -

    I believe there's another thread floating around somewhere that details the event itself, and the particulars of how the AA guys managed to get the shot in.
    Lambert of Montaigu - Crusader.

    Bolgios - Mercenary Game.

          I've seen/heard several versions of this action, and of the other US pilot shot down by the Serbs. Whatever version I sense some major screw ups and embarassment on the part of the US mission planers/commanders in both cases. Hitting the Chinese consulates building was no prize either.
