This Pilot Had To Try And Land His F-15 With Only One Wing After A Mid-Air Collision

An incredible pilot was up in the air with his damaged F-15 after colliding with an A-4 Skyhawk in mid-air during a training exercise. The collision cleanly shaved one of the wings off the body of the F-15 forcing Israeli pilot Zivi Nedivi to make an emergency landing.

The crash sent his jet into a wild roll and both pilot and navigator were prepared to eject. In a last ditch effort to salvage the plane, Nedivi switched on the afterburners and miraculously stabilized the aircraft. The quick-thinking pilot had to fly 10 miles to land.
