    There was a T-38 crash in Columbus Wednesday morning. Both pilots ejected safely. It made the local news, but I have not seen it anywhere else.

    The Talon augured into a "remote area" near the base with no people or houses nearby.
    Both of those guys will be a bit shorter now, but they're alive and well and nobody was hurt.
    First-responders put out the fire quickly, so all in all, a pretty good outcome.

    Dang. I thought there was another one until I saw the date on the first post of this thread!
