New details emerge about mysterious crash of US Air Force pilot near Area 51 | SOFREP

In a story published late Monday, September 11, 2017 on AviationWeek.com, new information has been revealed about the type of aircraft that USAF Lt. Col. Eric Schultz, call sign “Doc,” may have been flying at the time of his mysterious crash 100 miles Northwest of Nellis AFB in the Nevada Test and Training Range.

Speculation about the crash was fueled by Air Force media releases that did not indicate the type of aircraft that was being flown by Lt. Col. Schultz on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 when the accident occurred.

There was also a delay in the story reaching news media that raised further questions since the accident was reported after another unrelated accident involving two A-10s.
