An aircraft that appears to be the highly sensitive American stealth drone lost in Iran looks intact and with little visible damage in new video broadcast on Iranian television today.
The cream-colored RQ-170 Sentinel is shown sitting on display in front of a patriotic Iranian poster as two uniformed military men examine the drone's radar-eluding batwing frame.





The RQ-170, known as the Beast of Kandahar, is one of America's most advanced unarmed surveillance drones -- so sensitive that the Air Force did not even acknowledge its existence until last year. It was reportedly used to keep tabs on the man believed to be Osama bin Laden during the Navy SEAL mission that took out the terror leader in Pakistan in May.

On 4 December 2011, Iran's semi-official Fars News Agency reported that the Iranian Army's electronic warfare unit[23] had downed an RQ-170 that violated Iranian airspace along its eastern border and captured the lightly damaged wreckage of the UAV, claiming that they had succeeded in hijacking its controls


Kind of scary if true.. I didn't know it was so easy to hack the controls of a drone.

For anyone curious, the posters hung allegedly read:
"America cannot do a damn thing", a quote from Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and the other "We will crush America under our boots.

For something was has supposedly crashed/been shot down, it sure seems pretty well in tact.

I'm not buying what they're selling.

any pics to a actual RQ-170

very clearly different planes. The one the Iranians put on video doesn't appear to have rear stabilizers. Something is definitely afoot. But then, it has been for a while. . .

If you google image RQ-170..then there are a whole host of pics that dont show the rear stabilizer. Is this pic posted above of the drone in flight accurate and actually an RQ170
? If so, how many different versions of the RQ-170 are there?!

As we know now the US did lose this drone over Iran, deep in Iranian airspace. It is thought that the Russian or Chinese specialists helped with taking control of the drone, to bring it down.

Not a proud moment for the US and it's covert operations wing.

Sad to see ....really.

The Chinese have just been confirmed as the largest group, government directed, to be hacking into all the USA data bases, corporate and government. The US has admitted they had a very large amount of top secret information stolen by hackers based in China. The loss to US companies alone in trade secrets totals over 100 billion dollars.

There may be real problems ahead...the drone capture looks like the start of something new.
Makes you wonder what might be next,.

Later, John
