No one knows exactly how the spy-plane incident occurred, and the only witnesses have given different versions of what happened.
One thing keeps bothering me about the American version. The captain tells us the spy plane went out of control, rapidly losing altitude, plunging and almost overturning before he could make a safe landing.
In that case, could any aviation expert explain how all the 24 crew on board the spy plane landed without a scratch on any of them? It appears they made aviation history.
