Downed U.S. Spy Drone shown on Iran TV [Video]

[ Bloomberg ] 9 Dec
The RQ-170 spy drone, a virtually invisible to radar and carries advanced communications and surveillance gear, made a 2 1/2 minute television debut yesterday on Iran’s state-owned Press TV channel, after it was shot down by Iran a few days ago. 
Bloomberg reports that several U.S. officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the drone program is classified, said the greatest concern is that access to the aircraft could give Russian or Chinese scientists insight into its flight controls, communications gear, video equipment and any self-destruct or return-to-base mechanisms.
