View Full Version : F-16 escort whitnessed in Chicago

In case any of you hadn't heard, 2 F-16's escorted a plane into O'Hare from LA after a mentally handicapped person banged repeatedly on the cock-pit door because he wanted to see the cock-pit.

Just so happens that the F-16's hit supersonic and then swooped on the plane virtually in front of my eyes as my colleagues and I all watched in disbelief as the whole thing unfolded before our eyes just outside of our office window....

None of us can say our hearts didn't skip a beat...

Here is the story (http://abclocal.go.com/wls/news/100801_ns_americanairlines.html)

I predict this will be moved to *War of Terror* board.

Yeah, I heard about that on a Blackhawk's site chat room. Scary stuff.
