  1. Beginning to think Trump has figured out this is not a good idea. The RQ-4 Global Hawk is designed to be a max stealth air craft, and at the time it was shot down it had all its tracking equipment turned off(against international aviation rules). This means F-35 and such can be shot down also. This was one of only 11 of the latest model RQ-4, with a price tag of around 250,000,000 dollars.
