Photo’s from Britain’s “The Daily Mail” newspaper may have just revealed a very very big clue as to how the Seal Team was able to penetrate Pakistani airspace with out tipping off their air defense and warning systems.  At first it was thought maybe the RQ-170 (Beast of Kandahar) had helped JAM Pakistani air defense networks.

But the recent wreckage photo’s seem to point to a new stealthy version of a helicopter.  The tail rotor section that the PAF is quickly cleaning up and covering with security blankets does not appear to be that of a MH-60.  If this is so, then the Pakistani’s may have just scored a major tech coop and boost.  More details I’m sure will arise on this subject over time.  Photo’s have now popped up in the Daily Mail, and the Wall Street Journal.  Blogger Steve Trimble spotted this and pointed it out first in his BLOG on May 3.
