An anonymous reader writes "During the collision the F-15 fighter lost one of its wings. Due to the intense fumes the pilot and his navigator Yehuar had no idea that they were flying with only one wing. This is why they chose not to abandon the jet and proceeded with a crash landing. Only when the aircraft was landed and Ziv Nadivi leaned back towards his navigator for a congratulatory handshake, he realized that the aircraft wing on the right hand side was missing."
