There was a topic on this forum recently about the F-117 being spotted flying around the Nellis Bombing Range, which made me remember a similar story thats been circling the aviation water coolers in the Vegas Valley.
The United States military and Intelligence communities have owned, tested and operated foreign military assets since the 1960’s, using them for developments of tactics. One photographer was lucky enough to be perched in the desert surrounding Groom Lake and caught a series a photos depicting a SU27 Flanker engaged in a dogfight against an agressor F16 Fighting Falcon. The CIA operates at least four known SU27’s, but it is uncertain if this SU27 was one of those four.
This is pretty amazing, and I think a trip up to Rachel, Nevada might be in my future. I’ll post the link below for the article so yall can take a read for yourselves.
