There have already been posts on this. It was a training drill. Somehow the press got the wrong end of the stick

lol, a training drill.

I hope you are right!!!  Smile. In fact, I think I already heard it was a training drilll... but what about the '76 feared dead' bit? Sounds odd for a training drill (I would assume in training, there would be more survivors to attend to  Big grin).
