    I dont live far from the FAA which is where they launch lots of f-16's and other military aircraft - they have been flying over the house back and forth - usually not a good sign, any crazy terrorist news out there??

    hopefully they aren't looking to take the F-14 Tomcat out for a spin, its just a pinball machine

    Uh, havn't you watched/read the news? Everyone's on high alert because of the foiled iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi embassador to the US by planting a bomb at his favored restraunt in DC.... That could be the reason for the sudden activity.

    I used to live near a airforce base in Duluth. They fly a lot for training and such...so maybe its just trainings.... Or did code silver get put out...alert code silver, everyone must play pinball immediately!

    I kind of remember a few F-16s bombed an Elementary school couple years ago?
    In South Jersey?

    Do you mean they had something fall off and land in a school? Stuff falling off is an accident. You make it sound like they actually meant to hit a school. Without remembering that incident, I highly doubt they targeted a school.

    I think I remember that but it was an accident something came off or when out of wack during training. We have an amazing airshow here during the summer if anyone is near the Atlantic city area late August. Nothing like watching an airshow while sitting on the beach. Really impressive what these things can do.

    Well must have been training that day no more activity - after 9/11 and being here on the coast while they were flying back and forth to DC all that week - left that bad feeling. USA USA ....

    Apparently, they accidentally hit the school with bullets during a training exercise. Pretty crazy! Thank god school wasn't in session at the time.

    A couple of years ago, a F-18 crashed landed into a neighborhood 15 minutes away from where I live.
