What do you do when a wing is torn off your F15? If you are Captain Zivi Nedivi, of the Israeli airforce, you break off from your training exercise and return to base.

You've only got one wing, but you make up for that by flying twice as fast. This really happened, on May 1 1983, over the Negev desert. The F15 Eagle collided with an A4 Skyhawk. The Skyhawk was destroyed, though I understand that the pilot ejected automatically and survived.

The Eagle had a wing torn off, but the pilot incredibly managed to regain control and return safely home.

F-15 landing with one wing. Real story.
