    Not only the old guys - this Israeli F-15 landing without a wing is one of the most outstanding feats of airmanship ever IMO

    Great thread, it always amazed me how some of those B17s etc made it back to base!,,,
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The B-17 in Thanatos's thread, if I remember correctly, did not make it back. If you look closely, the whole cockpit, incl. pilot and co-pilot, were blown off. Danny

    Great photo Look at the way he is trimmed. Looks like he still had decent control of the aircraft as the control surfaces are not maxed out.
