RUMINT: Photo of the Strike Eagle that Crashed?

A DT reader who ID'd himself only as Mike J sent us a link to a webpage that highlights F-15E 91-0304, apparently the airplane that crashed in Libya a few hours ago.  Not sure how Mike knows, but we thank him for the link (and we'll verify the rumor ASAP).  Eagle-eye Mike J got the tail number off of the video that's airing all over the place (see below).
