F-15 flying with one wing by an Israeli Pilot
In the year 1983, an F-15 of the Israeli airforce collided with a Skyhawk while doing a practice. The Skyhawk blew away but the pilot abandoned it peacefully. The F-15 lost his right wind but the pilot Ziv Nadivi couldn't see it because of the vast fuel fumes that covered it. The pilot and the navigator Yehuar Gal didn't not know they are flying on one wing only, a state which is of course "impossible" to fly in, and didn't not abandoned the jet but continued to land a crash landing. Due to the high velocity of the jet (450kmph) while landing, the stopping hook was cut away and the jet stopped a few meters before the end of the runway.
