Popular Mechanics/Aviationist: Mysterious Air Force Crash Reportedly Involved a Foreign Plane

The pilot was likely evaluating a foreign fighter, such as a Russian Sukhoi jet.

On September 5, a U.S. Air Force aircraft crashed at the Nevada Test and Training Range (NTTR), killing the pilot. But even a week later, the Air Force has refused to reveal the type of aircraft involved in the incident. The hush-hush treatment has left many people wondering what the plane could be, and whether the Air Force is developing a new "black" aircraft that has not been declassified to the public.

However, sources tell Aviation Week that the pilot involved in the crash, Lt. Col. Eric Schultz, was a squadron commander of an Air Force unit that tests and evaluates foreign aircraft. If this is the case, the most likely explanation is that Schultz was piloting a foreign jet at the time of the crash.
