    Somewhat old news. But the video was GREAT and the recoveries were magnificent. Some years back I saw a video of the landings. I think it was classified at the time, but would be a good view today. Apparently the stabs are big enough to compensate for major wing damage, much like the stabs on the F-15.

    Shows some decent commitment to redundant design for combat survival.

    I don't think this is a "no one blinked" situation.
    Both these aircraft were on the same team , and going in the same direction, they rolled into each other.

    I'd hate to think what would happen if these two just slightly touched in a head on merge.
