We had a KC-135 go down in Kyrgyzstan today. http://edition.cnn.com/2013/05/03/world/asia/kyrgyzstan-us-aircraft-missing/index.html The crew was from Fairchild and the aircraft from McDonnell. This one hit home to me. One of my best friends from USAFA brought that plane to Kyrgyzstan two days ago. Tough week for the AF. Three aircraft down (MC-12, 747 contract, and KC-135).
