        Trained ... the price of the error is several tens of millions of dollars, the dismissed pilot and the dismissed commander.

        More often than not ... you look in a year in the US Air Force and there will be no one to spread democracy in the world ... how many human lives will be saved.

        It would seem an ordinary event but still interconnected with GOD'S WORLD ... someone will live long after this incident.

      I guess where he landed, the one who is for the clinician. He wouldn’t be in a hurry to search without a muzzle.
      The joke is certainly so-so, but the more they themselves, the less willingness we have

        The guys decided to keep up with each other, but apparently there wasn’t enough experience and skill, that's the result, and minus two fighters in the US Air Force.

      smile It’s not true ... OBAMA convinced everyone that they are exceptional and Putin is to blame for everything ... including this flight accident ... Putin also influenced the US elections ... therefore, all that is bad in the USA is Putin ...

        Putin’s zombie companion did his dirty work in Ukraine and moved to take off the bloody harvest in the stronghold of democracy. What a nightmare. Where progressive humanity is looking

          The stamp about bad PUTIN will still make a lot of trouble for the Western press ... it's their big mistake to blame everything on PUTIN ...

    Well, here are the screams, and only ... But, suddenly, decided to test each other on the frontal? And not a single one backed down? Why immediately the doubt in the pilots? Our fellows, but the rest .... No, pilots (and even more so, fighter pilots) in all countries - PROFESSIONALS!

    How can you catapult in a collision?
    Who are the pilots here, please explain.
    Thank you in advance!
    Could they hook each other tangentially?

    In the morning we decided: What are we worse?
