U.S.A.F. Crash In Nevada Yesterday?

Sun Jun 25, 2006 1:24 pm

According to FBOWeb, there is a TFR in southern Nevada for the next four days due to an "aircraft accident".

Does anyone know what is going on out there? Why would there be a four day flight restriction for an accident? Possibly something they don't want people to see??
