Watch carefully and you can see the pilot's helmet rolling down the flight deck.

Whatever they used took the port wing off at the wing root. Doubtful a MANPAD like an SA-7/SA-16 would do that, nor would small arms or light AAA.  Wonder if those guys have big boy SAMs?

That was great, Duke!  I loved the Midway clip where Heston's prop-driven plane magically turns into a jet after hitting the carrier.

Play by Play of this incident.


Coastguardsmen discuss the rescue - seems like the down fliers were in a bad way when they fished them out.

3 of the Presidential helicopters flew over me today in Rockville.  I was walking back from a grocery store and had my hands full so I didn’t get a chance to take a picture.
Are we having fun yet?

I'll believe it when I see it.  Hard to believe something like this could be approved in government controlled entirely by the Democrats.
