    That is one big plane. The firetrucks look like toys.

    Nope, heard bout it on the radio in the shower.

    They found the tail though, about a half mile away. Good thing it crashed in afield and not in town, would be nasty. Gonna be a hard cleanup today too aith 30-40 mph winds and hail and such.

    These things are massive, the pictures do it no justice, the tail stands 6 stories high. I took flight lessons on base, and even now, after learning and knowing how/why planes fly, I still say these things shouldnt fly. Theyre just to big, but they do.

    So long as noone was hurt its ok. (since i cant find an american flag smiley) :flag smiley: (thatll have to do)
