Would this be what you're looking for? Not quite all the wing but a fair bit of it!

I saw the same programme. It was an Israeli DF F15D that had a mid air collision with an A4 and managed to land with only one wing. I saw the photos on the show. Incredible.

I have had a quick websearch and only come up with a couple of references

http://www.us-israel.org/jsource/History/f15.html

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/academic/history/marshall/military/airforce/f_series_fighters/f15.13

No photos, but seeing the photos on the TV, I do believe it happened.

Yeah, thanks. I hadn't seen your reply before I posted. That was one of the several photos they had on the show.

Still amazing.

I remember seeing a photograph of an F-18 that had suffered a midair; the last third of the port wing was like confetti.


It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

Don't forget the Spantax CV-990 that colided with an Iberia DC-9 in the 70's and still managed to land despite large chunks of a wing being torn off. The DC-9 wasn't so lucky.

Not crazy at all. A TWA 707 lost a bit of wing on takeoff from SFO and somehow made it to Travis AFB a few years ago.

Or do I remember the PA 747? Call me crazy, it seems that I get more confused by the day though I'm not yet in full dementia. Soon though, way too soon.

it's getting harder not to tell people they are really odd if they think an airplan can be sexy.

Sulman, don't know if this is what you're referring to, but I have quite an extensive archive of pictures of aircraft from the net, and I quickly found these 2.

Not as severe as the F-15, but impressive nonetheless.
