I guess it is going to be inevitable that with the amount of flights some planes are going to get lost, at least the pilots are safe and not in the hands of the enemy.

mechanical failure? i would say shot down. USA is known for calling shot down ,mechanical failure to overstate effectiveness of its overrated equipment

A mechanical failure from being shot down...?
from using generic aftermarket parts to save money?
a little sand in the thingamabob?

The same countries that are attacking Libya
have been sellin arms and anti arms to Libya all along...

According to the TELEGRAPH
Al CIA DUH! is the REBELS
www.telegraph.co.uk...
so don't they behead western pilots...?

This is war. hahaha
But seriously, there have been trouble in the middle east for a while now. Its not gonna be long until they want to retaliate.

Also, i think this is actually very sneaky of the US. Who in their right mind would think bombing an area is going to fix the problems with their leader? this would be a perfect time to take control as there is already a social divide in the population. I really just think there trying to get as much control over the middle east as possible to its easier for them then to gain control over palestine pakistan etc.

And i was watching the news the other day and hilary clinton (no caps because shes not important, lol.) and she was talking about a Universal colition and stuff like that, could that just be a sneaky way to say that you are forming allies?

Also, isnt Libya a no fly zone at the moment?

The reporter that has seen the wreak says that it is fairly complete, the anti aircraft missiles capable of hitting that would pretty much destroy the aircraft - sounds to me a little like the pilot tried to control the F15 for as long as possible to probably ditch in the best available place, and then ejected at the very last minute - he seems to have done something right cos he was taken in by the rebels and is being protected etc... Now the biggest worry would be either hauling the wreak out or destroying it totally with air strikes.... loads of nice kit in one place there, lots of weapons lots of top secret stuff.

lol! - The point of a no fly zone is you control who flys there
The Americans need to fly there, because how are you gonna stop all the people you say are not allowed to fly there? (read that again, I'm pretty sure it made sense).

Of all places in known Universe, including arctic desert, active volcanoes and exploding supernovas, Libyan warzone ranks as lowest, on the list of places to defect to.

If it was an F-15 E then there should also have been a co pilot as the F15 E has two seats.

Just heard they only have found the pilot there is a search for the co pilot

1031: More details on the crash. African Command's Kenneth Fidler tells the BBC the indications are that the crash was not caused "by hostile action". He says that one crew member has been recovered, and an operation is currently under way to recover the other serviceman.


from bbc live updates
bbc

you edited it in before I could post
never mind


1035: Mr Fidler also confirms that the warplane - F-15E Strike Eagle - crashed overnight. It was not immediately clear where the jet went down.
