Grow a brain you hoax Russian.

You are really just contradicting yourself. How do you know he is a hoax Russian?

To assume is only to make an a$$ of yourself.

^^ What's your point Warlord ??

The guy claims he is a russian, and defaces russian tech.

None of B-2 was shoot down. All 21 planes are still in service. Only one F-117 was. Here is another picture of hard landing...

How come the plane is intact even after crashing down ??

My guess would be that this aircaraft has suffered a failure of its frontal landing gear after touchdown, thus much of the gravitational potential energy has been negated. Still brown trousers time for the pilot though

I doubt if that is actually a picture of a F-117 shot down over Kosovo.

Maybe its just a broken down F-117 in some american air base

the picture up there is the pic of a Nighthawk which hardlanded on an US base I think... It's not a crash, it's a front train leg break...

there are no pics of b-2 bomber shot down only f117 so in reality its the 117 dat was shot down only stealth fighter.

Folks I don't have time for a link but yes a F117 was shot down in the Balkans. It was shot down by AAA I think, but I am not sure how that happened at altitude. At least that is what I remember......

That was my next question, thanks for answering it.

Don't the Nighthawks fly at night? Did the baddies have NV or WWII spotlights or something?

the f-117a shot down was brought down by a SAM no triple A

like i previously said, theyre are at least 10 diffrent explantations, one is random AA fire, another one was triangulation with radar, another was their flight path was well known, and another is the bomb door jammed, who knows which is the real explantion?

Ok I know you are only supposed to post things relevant to the thread but this is relevant I promise.

Can someone please get some spell checker action going in the post reply window!!!

Seriously reading this thread and the mass of spelling and syntax errors has left me with a massive headache.

That hardlanded craft looks pretty salvagable....

American F-117A stealth bomber shot down over Yugoslavia in March of 1999.

I ahve already admitted an F-117 was shot down and I still think it was AAA not a radar or IR guided missle.

Show me pics of a crashed B-2 will ya?

this guys hardly orgional, showing us pictures of known events...big wow

I apologise to anyone who finds this reply boring or repetitive but I have already posted on at least three occasions the entirely rational reason I belive the 'B-2' claim is made.

Namely that the F-117 serves as a bomber and that is well known, thus the shooting down of a 'stealth bomber' claim just got misreported by those who wish to put a type name to the story by replacing the words 'stealth bomber' with the name of the only known official stealth bomber, the Northrop B-2. That is all that happened.

Its like Chinese whispers, first an F-117 on a bombing mission is shot down, next the gleeful defending forces are full of how they shot down a stealth bomber, quite understandibly, then someone else makes the connection with 'stealth bomber' and goes "Oh, a B-2 has been shot down!", then someone else tries to make sense of the claim and rationalise that this must mean a B-2 AND an F-117 have been shot down and on we go. Its completely farcical as 21 B-2's were delivered to the USAF and 21 are in service today.

The reason I repeat this yet again is that those who simply love the idea of a B-2 being downed have oddly managed to completely ignore this line of thinking while pressing on with this unsubstantiated claim.

You could very well be correct that they think a F117 is a stealth bomber. I ahve see the Press call a destroyer a battleship more than once.
