Seems par for the course wrt to construction projects on DOD installations.  Like being required to make an alert facility be ADA compliant.  A facility that sits on a flightline, where only able-bodied service members will live/work...beyond ridiculous.   For what we got, the money we spent on that project should be criminal.

Picture from the Frogfoot accident, some claiming the tanker hit saved the C-130 but the missile ended up hitting a house killing two adults and (now claimed) three children.

How did the fuel truck not blow up? Even with the warhead not exploding I’m surprised that the exhaust didn’t ignite the fuel fumes that had to have been present in the tank.

It's the watered-down JP-8 they're  selling...surprised the engines can achieve ignition

So here's an interesting read from Task and Purpose.

Dude refused to turn over his weapons after making threatening comments to his chain-of-command in an email.  When they went to his on-base residence to take his guns away, he went full Code of Conduct on that ass.

What I love the most about this is how his wife turned it into a team sport:

"Injerd’s wife then opened the front door to their home, and the airman retreated into the house, shut the door, broke a back window, crawled out, scaled the base perimeter face and escaped into the woods.
