At the time this was a shock – how could a stealth aircraft get hit? The F-117 was at the cutting edge of military technology. But it was shot down by an old radar system that used vacuum tubes!
Here is a video with a ~30-minute presentation by the officer who ran the SAM battery. The presentation has English subtitles. The presenter mentions downing an F-16 and also impacting a B-2. The video is a production of Serbia-based TangoSix. A fascinating story.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
