F/A-18 FROM KITTY HAWK DOWN 08:42 3 Apr 2003

It seems that a Hornet strike fighter from the USS Kitty Hawk has been shot down. Apparently in the Al Basrah region. Wreckage was shown on some Arab TV this morning, but I don’t think it was Al Jazeera. MSNBC said that it may have been brought down by a US Patriot missile. Something serious needs to be done about the IFF or whatever’s wrong with those things.
