Look at those grapes...you don't get grapes like that at the local super-market. But it wouldn't be worth joining the military just to get good grapes...(they wouldn't take me anyway..) they are grapes aren't they???

Awesome Photos! Thanks!

Yes, they are grapes. The caption said it is an Iraqi kid feeding an AF perimeter guard at the air base in Balad.

All the caption said was that it was a rollover accident with no injuries. Since it's near a highway, I was kind of thinking the driver came down an off ramp a little too fast. How fast can those Bradleys go, anyway?

Flat out on a highway, he could have been going 40 or 45 mph - they're as fast as a tank (they were designed to be so they could operate together), but not as stable. I think it's possible that they could have made a wide turn, run off the edge, and buried the outside track in the soft shoulder, causing it to tip over, but it's hard to imagine. If the shoulder was a couple feet lower, it would be easier to envision, but that must be what happened.

I'll have to show the picture to some of the other mech guys around the office and see what they think.

Thanks for posting the pictures!
