  • when i turned 9, this happened

    just found out that an f-117 was shot down on my 9th birthday. i knew one was shot down, never paid attention to the date. march 27th 1999 lol
    apparently the pilot and the guy who shot him down, are now friends.

        Yugoslavia fell apart into Serbia, Macedonia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Slovenia and later Kosovo. The Serbian Army was present in several of the other provinces when the incident happened. The reports I read (including a thread here) said the shoot down was in Serbia.

          I remember it. Quite a sensation it caused.

          Newspapers in India were speculating , that it was downed using co ordinates / data from Airtrafic Rsdar. Some credited Russians with inventing new technologies ?

          Any way the story remained quite time in news.

            I remember reading that the Serbs were able to track the F-117 by using Weather Radar. They then set up a Roland AA vehicle right under the flight path it always used

              I believe that YugoLand shattered into wegoslavia, theygoslavia, igoslavia, & the SerbiaOldCommies heartland.

              They were doomed after naming the nation after one of the worlds' scrappiest cars......

                So....let me get this correct. A USAF F-117 stealth fighter/bomber was shot down over some place that used to be called Yugoserbia or something like that and the pilot ejected and was rescued in the nick of time by a Sikorsky chopper, yes? So that would make you 29 now...

                    Itís a window into how an adversary with initiative and sound understanding of the weapons he has to face in knowing its limits. The story in how the colonel managed to evade NATO planes is remarkable.
