don't think the taliban had much to do with this, no matter what they say. Flying hours and hours of holding patterns ought not to end like this.

They have the capability to take down planes. I wouldn't doubt that they did it. I wonder why, if they did, the potus is afraid to admit it.

Tis sad, may they rest in peace. I flew Reconnaissance in the Navy and we always knew something bad could happen. The People flying know the risks and take them every day. I hope and pray their families mourning eventually eases.

The bodies of the only two service members who were on board have been recovered. I’m thankful that there weren’t more souls on board. RIP.

Here’s pictures of the crash. It looks like it fell out of the sky... very little forward trajectory on the crash, and it is all intact, no breakup.

Ricky, I have to agree with you. I flew in the RC-135M in the Gulf and it is always a chance that something will go wrong. Had some interesting landings, but luckily we didn't lose anyone or any planes. Can't be said for everyone. I hope that the families of this crew will find peace and comfort soon.

The wreckage must be totally destroyed if we cannot get to the sight before the Muslim Trash does? Sorry for any deaths. They know if they are alive that they must get away from the crash sight because the wreckage must be totally melted down.
