An F-15E from Lakenheath dropped a BDU-33 25lb practice bomb - and made an 18 in crater.

Is this what they mean by 'Ground Attack' ??

Little Bitty Blue Death from above!

(Although I did see a guy kill a rattlesnake with a BDU-33 on the flightline once... yes, it did have a charge in it and yes, the guy was an idiot.)

We had a F-117 bomb West Texas last year. He bombed a interstate dumpster & somebody's bathroom before he found out he was dropping practice bombs. He claimed he didn't know the jet was loaded with them, which may be true. The investigation revealed he was running late, missed most of his pre-flight briefing, his jet crapped out & switched planes at the last minute and didn't pre-flight it.

Dangerous play makes for dangerous accidents...you should get to read the yearly "TFOA" reports - "Things Falling Off Aircraft".

I used to read the weekly Navy TFOA report. I couldn't believe how many antennas fell off aircraft.

But didn't Yorkshire oppose President Bush's appeal for coalition support to attack Iraq?

No, wait, that was France.

But didn't Yorkshire sell night-vision equipment to the-- no, no, that was Russia.

Well, it was really cold and windy last time I was in Yorkshire, so there.
