More of these as our Air Force ages, and will soon become a third rate entity in the armed forces of the

There was no mid air explosion. The plane did not breakup into three pieces. There was no parachute visible. Somebody was drinking too much goat milk!

You jerk, we are talking here about loss of lives, be respectful to those who were doing their jobs so you can sit confortably on your fanny at home.

Chalet, you misunderstood the post. I was thinking of another crash (check my attachment) while reading about this one where somebody claimed they saw a breakup, explosion and a parachute.

This particular blog was about the KC-135 fatal accident, why you brought the other one, makes no sense. Rgds.
