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).
Here are the jet's details:
|Engines:||Pratt & Whitney F100-PW-229|
|Current Operator:||48th Fighter Wing 492nd Fighter Squadron "Madhatters" RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom|
|Last Spotted:||July 2006|
