    Comment from a guest: I remember digging this plane out of the sands of kuwait when a tow job went bad on night shift. She was christened the 4X4 after that night. I'f I recall correctly some stealth guy's got a real laugh that night. ... (message left Sun 10 Sep 2006) Any other details, ie exact date or damage?
