Doc Schultz' Area 51 Mishap: The Details Revealed

What Happened to Doc Schultz?

In Sept 2017, USAF test pilot Lt.Col. Eric "Doc" Schultz was killed flying a classified type from Area 51.

The Air Force refused to release any details of the accident and has since returned "no records found" to freedom of information act requests.

In the five years that have elapsed, Schultz' good name has been tarnished by the insinuation that he exceeded his own capabilities or those of the aircraft he was flying.

For the first time, 10 Percent True sets the record straight and reveals the truth behind his tragic loss.

He was in the jet that downed one of the two Iranian drones shot down during that tour and recounts his experiences duelling Russian Flankers and 'kneecapping' the ISIS HQ in Raqa. 

It's a fascinating interview that lifts the lid on what really happened between Russia and the US over Syria...

Part 2 will conclude the Syria tour, and Part 3 onwards will take a look at the Strike Eagle's capabilities, the process of converting from back- to front-seat, and the rising spectre of China.
