From the USA, there are reports of firing at one of the air force bases. We are talking about the Grand Forks Air Force Base in North Dakota.


According to recent reports, as a result of the shooting, which was opened at about half past four in the morning on Monday (local time) in a dormitory for personnel at the air base, two servicemen were killed.

Colonel Cameron Pringle, who is the representative of the command of the air base, said that at the moment he could not give all the details of what happened due to the ongoing investigation.

Shooting occurred at the Grand Forks Air Force Base in the United States: fifth shooting incident since 2010


At the same time, during the briefing, the colonel announced that at the moment "the situation at the air base is calm, everything is safe in the hostel for the military."

The American officer was asked whether it is allowed to wear weapons in a dormitory for military personnel at an air base. Colonel Pringle said that there was no such permission, and at the same time he could not answer the question of how, in this case, the firearm in the military dormitory building turned out to be.

This is not the first shooting incident at the Grand Forks Air Force Base. In 2013, a military pilot was killed there. The weapon was used against him by the military police. The true causes of that tragic incident have not yet been established. In addition, in 2015, a military pilot shot and killed a local resident near the air base, after which the soldier himself was found dead. Fatalities at the Grand Forks also occurred in 2010 and 2011. Then, allegedly, the pilots committed suicide.

Colonel Pringle said that on the basis of the "service of psychological support for the flight crew."

      They don’t shoot and lie calmly to themselves ...

      Interestingly, and the rules are forbidden to have a personal, purchased short-barreled weapon?

    Everything in life happens, and even more so in the military!
    By the way, here they like to write here, which we have LATERAL everywhere !!! JOK on the photo what equipment is in the control tower ...... though, the photo was taken about eleven years ago, probably soldier

        It's not a joke that the equipment is old ... it works and okay, I have had such a monitor for many years as a stand for a cup of coffee. By the way, it is inconvenient, but it was not possible to replace, the connector in the telemetry unit was very special. I had to change everything at once.

          Well, American RSN only last year began the transition from eight-inch floppy disks with missile flight profile programs. And with the DCK in the control room of the early 80s of the last century - only after the middle of this century.

            Then, progress has begun, where a new one is being built or a major replacement is being carried out.
            We can’t find such a monitor anymore ... mine was just the last one; all the equipment was replaced, it’s been like five or six years.
            Although now there is no way to put coffee on the monitor, they are flat.

              Then we have made progress,

              Managers explain our superiority in equipment by the fact that we simply did not have the old! They began to switch from paper to electronics - immediately to modern.
              By the way, the Bush mln elections were still considered punch cards on the iBieMke of the early 80s. He lost the election, but became president by court order.

    Yes, let the lads shoot. Ours are not there. The situation in the USA is seen as nervous. Do not worry, there are few casualties in the United States ... there are few casualties, probably there are many expired rounds. repeat
    An American officer was asked whether carrying weapons in a dormitory was allowed for military personnel at an air base.
    One must understand the issue of time weapons. But in the US, you can have it for personal use.

    I could not answer the question of how, in this case, a firearm in a military dormitory turned out to be.
    But for this (storage of weapons) rifle rooms exist in the Russian army. And the one who suddenly wants to shoot will not be able to take weapons when he wants to (he will have to wait for the guard to enter - black humor).

    After all, Grand Forks is the EMNIP base of the US Strategic Nuclear Forces, this is how they will argue, as one of the colleagues said, “a democrat with a republican about African-Americans,” and then something somewhere and maybe fly out, there is a reason to talk to our diplomats from the rostrum "on the need for international control over security at this base in connection with the threat of an unauthorized launch of ICBMs" ...
