From the sounds of it, it could have been a bird strike or electrical failure, considering that it went down shortly after takeoff. If I were a gambling man, I'd bet on bird strike. I am surprised more don't happen around here.

Eye witness reports were that the plane was nose up losing altitude. if it was a bird strike and they lost 1 engine they should have been able to at least get the plane to a better place to eject. Unless they ran into a huge flock and sucked up multiple birds into both engines. I'm guessing electrical failure. I was in Va Beach when two F-18's had a mid air collision and both made it back and landed safe.

I couldn't get the time off. It is real busy now that I am on a boat again. I am working 12-15 hour days. I am sorry I missed it. I heard that my guys kicked some American butt though. Hopefully I will be there in the fall.

Eh, I have lived on the East coast my whole life. Anything will beat Pensacola. I just miss mountains a ton. Screw this flat crap... VA may not be a huge step up, but I am happy to be able to further my career and be a step closer to a not-flat world.

So true... I remember that from last time I was stationed there. I'll be in Little Creek, I like to be able to see grass after I'm on base.
