so far I've only seen reports on this that use the website posted above as their source. If an entire waterfront saw this, and it is being played on
the russian media to the extent the writer claims, I'm sure some media outlets here would have picked it up. As things are, I'm beginning to doubt
the story -- which is good, in a way, because my first thought was that this is a classified american plane, and I wouldn't want the Russians to be
handed technology that's, perhaps, one or two generations more advanced than theirs currently is...
... though, at the same time, such a crash would force the government to reveal whatever technology it uses (so that american companies could get
ahead of their foreign counterparts), which, in turn, could help out the space program.
