    F-15’s are tough.. they can fly on one engine and even loose most of a wing. As for making it back to base, well I doubt it landed in any part of Yemen.

      If this loss is confirmed, it would represent the the first shoot down of the f15 in the planes history. (Syria claims to have shot down eagles before).

        Not true according to Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_F-15_losses

        19/20 January 1991 : F-15E-46-MC, 88‑1692, c/n 1101/E076,
        of the 336th FS, 4th TFW, USAF, was shot down by a Soviet made SA-2E
        missile during Operation Desert Storm. Both crew members ejected and
        were POWs

          Thanks Graeme, it’s what I get for repeating American media memes.

          I remember when that happened. That was when CNN showed footage of strikes on iraqi positions with paveway 2’s. Back when it wasnt ‘classified’ to show us military forces attacking iraqi military. Amazing how backwardvthings are now.

      Maybe if piloted by some well trained crew, but with a pair of Saudi clowns at the helm, anything is possible.

    clearly these yemen’s need to buy some cheap NIKON Coolpix P900 Optical Zoom Test – Moon, Planes, Bird, Church – Super Zoom
