I was searching on Ebay Germany when I found this: http://www.ebay.de/itm/Original-F-11...item1c29cc0d15
Is this legit ? And if it is, is it legal ? What do you think ?
An F-117 at e-bay ?
See? I was right to be suspicious !
This is interesting:

Yeah I heared about people getting screwed for selling Body Armor, but just take a look on Ebay and you´ll see that obviously nobody gives a fvck. But this is like the weirdest thing I´ve seen so far. An alleged part of a F 117 wing that got shot down.
What is illegal in selling piece of metal?It is an original part of the wing of the Lockheed Martin F-117 Nighthawk with the registration 82-0806, which was shot down on 27 March 1999 during the NATO airstrikes in Yugoslavia.
The dimensions are:
Its a honeycomb composite structure coated with composites, looks like the real deal to me.
This piece of whatever material is said to have once been part of a stealth aircraft of the U.S.Government, so if it realy is a piece of said F 117 than it´s not just metal and i don´t know if the public is meant to get hands on this material and I think it could also still be government property.
The honeycomb structure inside is probably only slightly conductive, each cell thus only reflects a tiny fraction in different angles and most of the energy is absorbed. So thats cool, wondering how its done now with modern designs.
I know a little bit about this stuff, did a lot of electrodynamical simulations for my bachelor degree.
It looks like it would work, at least to me this structure makes sense for this purpose.
