Not something we Americans get to see that often. Good photo, and a good story behind it.

Nice to see the structure inside of the wing.

I wonder if theU.S. government attempted to try to remove anything off of it before allowing it to be displayed? I also see a bullet hole in the wing.

Not too sure if the U.S. government was even in a position to allow or not allow it to be displayed. Nevertheless, this artifact is the "gift that keeps on giving" to whoever is displaying it as the RAM coating on the wings is very toxic!

I think those holes are not from bullets but from a missile's warhead. And according to their shape missile has exploded above and behind the plane.
