I just saw on the news that a ''US Miltary'' plane went down in Japan.
No type specification nor details.My prayers with those inside.  Sad

OK, here you go:


TOKYO, Japan (AP) -- The U.S. military says a pilot ejected safely from a U.S. F-15 fighter jet that crashed near Okinawa island on Tuesday morning.

The plane went down around 0100 GMT Tuesday ( 8 p.m. ET Monday) off the coast of Ikeijima island, part of the Okinawa island chain, according to Noriaki Hatake, an official at the Naha Defense Facilities Administration in Okinawa.

Hatake said the cause of the crash was unknown. The U.S. Kadena Air Base said the pilot ejected safely from the plane and was rescued. He was in good condition.

Okinawa is about 1,000 kilometers (660 miles) south of Tokyo.



Thanks to Yahoo news.

Good to hear that turned out good.  Smile

For the pilot. The plane, it's a little wet...



Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
