On May 1, 1983, during an Israeli Air Force training dogfight, an F-15D collided with an A-4 Skyhawk. The right wing of the Eagle was, unknown to pilot Zivi Nadavi, torn off roughly two feet (0.6 m) from the body. The pilot disobeyed his instructor's command to eject and managed to land the crippled aircraft successfully. The aircraft was able to land because of the large horizontal surface area of the tail and the amount of lift generated by the engine intake and body.
J'ai depuis retrouvé un lien qui comporte le récit du pilote :
Incroyable, n'est-ce pas ?
