I was reading about the F-117 accidents and I came across a crash that happened on November 16, 1987.
The website www.f-117a.com...
says this :
"Some classified aircraft
November 16, 1987
Pilot: UNKNOWN (USAF)
Pilot killed in crash
A possible reported crash of a stealth aircraft occurred November 16, 1987. An aircraft, described by Pentagon sources as a top-secret stealth
fighter, crashed in a rugged desert area, killing the pilot.
Major Victor Andrijauskas, a USAF official at Nellis AFB, Nevada, stated that the aircraft was flying over the Nellis gunnery range when it crashed.
Another Pentagon official said at the time that the plane was similar to the one that crashed in California the year before.(1986)
This reference to Maj. Mulhare's crash is an example of the U.S. Air Force using the F-117A program to cover crashes of other types of secret
It has been also confirmed on this article :
So an obvious guess would be a Nighthawk but here is the thing, every F-117 accident have been recorded so we have the date and registration of every
aircraft (more or less) involved and it goes like this :
-April 20, 1982 first crash of the F-117
-11 July 1986 crash of the #81-792
-14 October 1987 crash of the #83-815
-04 August 1992 crash of the #85-801
There have been some after but they're not revelant date wise.
So what crashed was described as a stealth aircraft by officials and we know it probably wasn't an F-117. So let's have fun speculating right ?
My guess would be the alleged "companion", I think it could fit since it was already flying around this timeframe. But we know there's been a lot of
classified technology demonstrator and prototype around this timeframe so it could be anything... or even something operationnal.
I was just surprised that this crash haven't been brought up yet on this forum so here it is.
And also RIP to the pilot involved in this accident. It must be tough for the family to maybe never know what caused the accident of a loved one.
