Just released in a Pentagon briefing. No news as to how or why, or survivors. Lets hope the crew ejected and will be recovered in good shape. Our thoughts are with them all.

I hope it was insured. Those things are like $200m a copy.

M4, You beat me to it....rescue mission is under way. Hopefully they'll stay warm in the water until they're rescued. Hate to see them survive the crash only to lose their life to Hypothermia.....God bless em'and protect them. [b][blue]NAKED[/blue[/b]

I've been paying my premiums every April 15, how about you? Seriously though, I hope the crew is safe.

There's an AC-10 circling the crash site, and the destroyer, USS Russell is in route to the scene.

Went down 30 miles north of Diego Garcia, according to Associated Press. [url]http://dailynews.yahoo.com/h/ap/20011212/ts/afghan_plane_down_2.html[/url]

I hope the crew is okay. I get edgy everytime an inreplacable aircraft goes down. We only have 80 some B-1s and 21 B-2's, plus 90 some B-52's. We despratley need to rebuild and modernize our bomber force, either by reopening B-2 production or by developing a B-3 and producing it in real numbers. ( Northrup has offered to produce aditional B-2s for $500 million a peice till the end of 03, when they will prolly sell the tooling for scrap )
