Wish I could see the look on the insurance agents face for that one. Hope they let him keep the bomb, it would make one hell of a conversation piece.[shock]

lemmie guess, an internal investigation determined it to be a "good shoot"

The pilot did not know his F-117A stealth fighter was carrying the 25-pound practice bombs as he targeted trash bins and other structures during a training exercise Tuesday, the pilot's wing commander said.

There goes one good Air Force career down the crapper... Talk about a new take on, "I didn't know it was loaded"! Thank goodness they were practice bombs! An alpha strike can really ruin your whole day! Edided beekuz eye kant spel...

That would be cool. Someone needs to drop a dummy bomb into my house. I'd be the coolest guy on ar15.com

I think that if I was the guy who's house had been bombed I would plead for the guys career. As long as nobody was hurt, I would be trying to help him. And oh yeah, I would ask if I could keep the bomb. Ben

The pilot is swearing up and down that he thought the house was reaching for a gun... [:D]

That pilot sux. He aimed at the trash can and hit a roof! With the precision guided munitions that they get he should have gotten only net. If all of our pilots are that inaccurate no wonder BIN Laden got away.... If OMAR, Abdula, and bin laden hide in trash cans this guy won't miss after the crap he takes for this one. I just hope he doesn't get shit canned.

Maybe next time he won't be so quick to save money buying those 3-MOA Wolf bombs and he'll go for the superior Lake City bombs.
