Is that so big of an shame for them? Please. That's why they don't have to worry about as (Serbia). We sold our downed F-117a to Chinese. :)
Besides, you shot it down by accident - nobody told you it was invisible , right ? LOL

P.S. Is it true that everyone who had a microwave oven turned it on during air raids ?

Yeah, that's joke been around. Truth is , there is no such thing as plane invisible to radar. They can only make them harder to be discovered with radars. (obviously not hard enough in this case :))

Nope you, you heard something close, but wrong. Serbian army engineers did some modifications on microwave ovens so they will leave similar trace as our radars did (Or something like that, have to check). Add cheap mask-model and Americans were convinced that they destroying expensive equipment while they were tomahawk-ing 150€ ovens. :).

At least that is story, don't know how true it is.

Anniversary - Monday 24 January 1972.

After 28 years of hiding in the jungles of Guam, Japanese (Nipponese) Sgt. Shoichi Yokoi who was unaware that the war had ended was discovered by farmers. He had been left behind in 1944 when the Japanese left the 200 square mile Pacific territory.

When told the war was over he disbelieved it. Subsequently a senior officer had come from Japan and give him the official news.

If I'm not mistaken they tracked down his old commander.

If my memory is right due to him not recognising the war was over they had to find someone that he would respect and know, so the hunt was on for one of his old officers, hence why his old commander was tracked down, and officially stood him down!

Can any Saffers translate (not the English🙄)
Gladly, my zulu is very rusty. The chorus in Zulu goes;

We have not seen him,
We have not seen Mandela,
In the place where he is,
In the place where he is kept.



The final verse is a bit different;

Steve Biko, Victoria Mxenge, Neil Aggett,
We have not seen our brother,
In the place where he is,
In the place where he died,
Hey you,
Hey you and you as well,
When will we arrive at our destination.


Steve Biko, Victoria Mxenge, Neil Aggett were activists and anti apartheid "freedom fighters" that were killed.

I'm sure you dont need the English translated:ROFLMAO:....but essentially its talking about Robben Island, an island off Cape Town that was used as a prison to hold "terrorists" and political prisoners.
