The Red X is known for it's ability to increase Stealth capabilities...you can't tell what anything is when you see it![;D]

I don't think putting bulls eyes on the Stealth Fighters would be a good idea. Not that the Afghans can hit them anyways.

Speaking of the Stealth Fighter, does anyone know if that F-117 we lost in Yugoslavia was shot down, or was it an accident of some sort?

Both. It was shot down when it flew over a unmapped AAA battery at 500 feet. The gunners never knew they shot it down, even though it crashed less than two kilometers away, until police found the wreckage at daybreak, and came and told them. By that time a HH-60 had already snuck in and snagged the pilot. While it was shot down, the gunners had been effectively flying blind, using sound direction. If the pilot had known the battery was there he could have steered a few degrees left or right and never been in any danger at all. In that sense it was a accident.

Actually the Air Force considers the F-117 Nighthawk a fighter. http://www.af.mil/news/factsheets/F_117A_Nighthawk.html They list it as a fighter/attack and use the "F" designation, despite it's lack of a gun. - CD
