Also, a U-2 has crashed in an unnamed Middle-Eastern country returning from Afghanistan. Interesting that it's an unnamed country ("due to host nation sensitivities"). So where do U2s fly out of in the area? Saudi Arabia? Or somewhere on the other side? They've apparently been flown in and from Georgia in the last couple of years. [Gaaa. Read the bloody article, Graham. Abu Dhabi. But did it come down there or in Iran or Pakistan?]
Incidentally, if any of you are looking for further proof that military pilots have no sense of self-preservation whatsoever, here it is.
