    Sucks about the bomber going down in Guam. My base is pretty tight lipped about it, since it came from here. Only one name mentioned and he was just going for a ride too. Rumor is he bumped the crew chief off for the ride. The Col was a pretty smart man too from all his credentials. Such a waste for all of them. I speculate they were doing high speed low level runs and tipped a wing into the drink accidentally or same scenario but maybe with an unauthorized flight pitch command input. Could also be bad radar altimeter data and flew it into the sea. What ever it was, it took a good crew down and about six families are not happy. May God Save Their Souls :wtc:

    It could be years before they find that plane.

    Buff crew from Louisiana here, too. As you would expect, a coworker of mine lives across the street from one of the families. I stopped speculating about what happened. It's just unfortunate and very sad.
