Holy caw! very cool!
israeli pilots are no 1 in the world ....that is a fact !
israel needs this kind of pilots in order to stay alive .
It is my DADs dream to fly in one of these now it is mine!! LOL
nice to have god on your side!
only the israeli pilot can do something like that
Or the modern fly by wire system that guided it.
What "modern fly by wire system?" This incident happened 29 years ago! The F-15 has subsequently been augmented with Fly By Wire technology, but not back then.
RIGHT YOU ARE, BUT THE AMERICAN PILOTS ALSO PRETTE TERRIFIC.
Only an American is good enough to train an Israeli to do it.
What are you drunk? That is the most naive comment I have heard. American's are no better than any other, have a think before you post such rubbish.
the man should really thank his stars!
israel got a strong army?
INCREDIBLE!!!! Outstanding pilot and even better plane, F-15 rules!!!
QUOTE: israel got a strong army?
Strong is relative.
Small (after all, the country is smaller than the state of Maryland), but they use top of the line equipment (seeing as how they develop a good deal of American military high-technology), and their pilots are trained to be the best in the world (literally).
Their pilots are given their planes almost as soon as they can drive a car. And their training can be compared in philosophy as US Marines sleeping with their rifles.
There is no doubt about it.
Israel got the best pilots in the world.
Israel should be one of the states of America.
We in Israel are actually quite comfortable with the current situation
but we will let you know if we ever put Israel for sell...
Anybody know what History Channel video this is? I want to buy it!
ye i know i want to see the rest abaut the mig in Japan.
That's great,Israeli pilots must are really from out of this world.A couple more feathers in their hats please.
What's so great? He wasted a 50 million $ airplane in a training exersize with poor tactical judgement. He's just lucky no one got hurt.
please ,dont be naive.
I was on duty that day in that airforcebase.
the pilot knew that he lost a wing.
by waching the film you can see yourself that the navigator
can have eye contact with the missing wing.
by knowing this case personally I can tell you that NADIVI-the pilot had to maneuver the plane in a very extraordinary way
in order to land the plane down.
also the flight supervisor could have seen the missing wing as the plane was approaching the runway.
this pilot was a real genius!!
You must like the mig 25 They are cool planes for a airshow but not for combat vers. the elite. How many F-15s have been shot down. My research says none. migs a lot. Question for you can a mig land or even fly with 1 wing ? You should try it by flying through one of those sh*t hole third world sh*t holes that the elite could wipe off the map.Yae maybe some would have bailed our pilot managed to save what was left of the of his F-15 HE could eject but did not.I am sure that you alresdy know that we are the super power.How does that saying go. You mess with the bull you get the hornes. Revised by me. You mess with the F-15 chances are you will not suceed.We do not need any other country to help us.
What's with all the F100 footage? I think its representing the A4 he collided with. Isn't there enough A4 footage available?
What's the title of the full movie?
The pilot, Zivi Nedivi works in Florida. Give him a call , the company's name is Kellstrom / Aviation Sales based in Miramar, Fla.
All my respect and admiration.
It is like in life or in politic.
It is the right wing that saved the rest
It is like in life or in politic.

Watch the movie again buddy. the right wing was the one that was chopped off... the left wing is the one that saved the day
No. The right wing was torn off.
He rather flew on his left wing ...
If his right wing was cut off, he should be rolling towards the right.
According to his gesture, he is rolling to the left.
Impact was from down to up to his right wing. It broke of his wing, and sent him to counter clock spin.
i saw the F-15 on the ground.
Whats all this crap about "god on his side" and "Israel got the best pilots". With enough money and training and the right equipment I am sure even yasser Arafat could have done it in his younger days!!!! Dont make this as some "divine" intervention because Israel has some "god given right" to do whatever it likes!!!
No one here was trying to admire one with no reason. He was unknown to the damage, and he had a very cool temper, that's what made him very alive now.
About your politic comment, I think you just came to the conclusion that the israeli ppl and the israeli army have the strongest will to be alive. Now about Yasser arafat. Take USAF they have alot of money and lots of training, though i think the IAF is in favor, it is not about money it is about dedication. which arafat has none.
Israeli army is the most dedicated army in the world and most powerful because of that.
One American jet fighter was admitting that he feels lucky to be on IAF side, after he flew with them.
You are illiterate.
You Jackass -- Get your self a long glass of cold water and chill out!
I'll put those pilots up against any pilot in the world - any time- any day!
Looks like you read too much into it! The mechanics alone is enough to say "wow" what a machine...the fact that God is on our side should be a knowledge known already.
Thank you for stating the logical explanation... and in my humble opinion, the correct explanation.
Great Flying, just like flying a rocket.
i am so happy i know i can trust pilot like this to defend his homeland
and with enough money and training even monkey can fly it with one wing, but the IAF looks for the ones can do that in 2 years of training, from zero, from piper cub, to supersonic f-15, f-16.
2 years. about 350 18 y.o children start this 2 years only 30 pass. and 18000 18 y.o children went through the very though tests series to become one of those 350. so don't sell me bullsh*t about yaser, and his minions. go check your skills i am sure you might likely join your airforce after what you saw, cause no one can stay cool to this movie
The full story is, that US army gave two F-15 to Israel after this accident, cause this help them sell their plants.
And.. a lot of this movie is edited video. only the BW photos is true, and the interview.
Sorry to disapoint you, but I've been in the IAF and I know for a fact that the US army didn't give us two F-15. The US army was so jenerous when they gave us a F-15 wing. You may think it is crazy but just that wing coasts so much that it was a really nice gift.
ARMY DON'T OWN PLANES TOO STUPID TO DO SO. Israel had to buy two new aircraft but now because of the accident
Israel is a miracle. This video just proves it. History has shown what her people are capable of, to survive against absolutely overwhelming odds against the 'darkest force' the world has ever seen. I also am very glad they are not our enemys and hopefully will stay our allies, no matter what administration we have elected. Blogengeezer USA.
there is no word to say
I do believe that God is on their side, What a Miracle indeed!!!!!
bunch of idiots. all that you have is a photo. other stuff is for zionist USUKs
