F-16 "Fly-by shooting" on elementary school in New Jersey
    #3323277 - 11/05/04 07:13 AM (17 years, 26 days ago)

F-16 "Fly-by shooting" on New Jersey school



An ANG F-16 Viper from the 121st FS/113th FW at Andrews AFB, on a nighttime training mission in New Jersey, accidentally fired 25 rounds of ammunition that tore through an elementary school last night. Luckily, no one got injured.

Police were called to Little Egg Harbor Intermediate School when a custodian heard what sounded like someone running across the roof of the school, shortly after 11 p.m. The custodian was the only person in the school at the time.

Police officers noticed punctures in the roof. Ceiling tiles had fallen into class rooms and there were scratch marks in the asphalt outside the building.

The pilot of the F-16C was supposed to fire at a target on the ground three and half miles away from school. It is still unclear what led to the school getting shot up.

The plane, belonging to the 113th Fighter Wing from the DC Air National Guard, flew at an altitude of 7,000 feet when the shots were fired from the M61 A1 Vulcan cannon. The pilot was supposed to fire at a ground target on the Warren Grove Firing Range, 3.5 miles away from the school. The Warren Grove range is managed by the New Jersey ANG.

The 2-inch long practice rounds are made of steel. The projectile is hollow and does not contain a filler and does not explode.

The 113th Wing flies the F-16C and F-16D Fighting Falcon, after conversion from the F-4D in January 1990. The F-16 is the ninth different type of fighter in the wing's 44-year history.

Are they still giving those fly guys amphetamines to stay up all night?

Yeah lucky it was at night. He'd be in a lot more shit if he had killed someone. Still this is horrible enough. If I were the parents I'd look into a new elementary school for my kids.

I bet they are still handing out amphetamines to pilots. That was, apparently, the cause of the friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan where 4 Canadian soldiers were killed and many more wounded. Pilot dropped a 500 lbs bomb on them in the middle of the night.

Amphetamines for people operating sophisticated killing machines. There's a bright idea. :smirk:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.

that was a stupid thing for you to say because, the problem wasn't brought about because the school is in a poor location, its because the pilot is a dumb-ass, much like yourself jetty boy.

No. I think he was saying that since the school is so close to a firing range it might happen again and he cared for the safety of his children. Why are you so angry lately? Chill. :smile:

I doubt that would have happened had it not been the night..... I dont think he thought the school was his target.

and I agree...... saying this is oh so horrible an omg people should move.... kinda silly....

seeing as this was an ACCIDENT it's just as likely to happen anywhere else there's any kind of military base.

it just erks me bf6, when people let there emotions speak for them before they think about the real problem, the problem really is that the pilot was a dumb-ass, because this is the first time an American pilot has taken out a school during target practice (as far as i know).

but yeah, i can see how stupid people would freak out and treat that nice little town as a war zone and evacuate the area over one freak accident.

Actually I was commenting that I would find my kids a new school not because its in a poor location reather because if it happened once it may happen again in broad day light when kids are there. I didn't say I would evacuate the area or move I just said I would find my kids a new school because of it being shot at on Accident ... You know I went to an elementary school that was out of my district when I was in elementary school It is possible to do that you know. agree he pilot was a dumb-ass. No I was not letting my emotions soeak before I thought about what I was saying. Maybe you should take the time to actually read and understand what I type before you go mouthing off. I mean what the fuck. I SAID 2 LITTLE FUCKING SENTENCES AND YOU JUMP MY SHIT. I didn't ask for your opinion or your comment about what I said. I was simply stating what I felt and what as a parent, though I'm not, what I'd do. You know you really shouldn't call someone retarded or a dumb-ass without knowing what they are talking about as it makes yourself look like a dumbass.

BTW thanks bf6 thats EXACTLY what I was meaning by what I said.

so because that school gotta couple shells stuck in it, they should tear it down, and build a new one elsewere, because that school can never be safe again, that my freind is stupid. that guy will be made an example of, and a school will never be hit again.


i mean something like that happens once a mellinia, its just not practical to make your children start all over makeing new freinds over a accident, sure it wasnt a oops sorry accident, it was very serious.

i have my opinion, you have yours, but lets put this fire out cause this is getting otdish.

kids cannot safely go to school there = has to be tore down, but that's not the case, the building is perfectly safe for children to study in.


most especially because this accident happened, and I'm very glad it happened at the time it happened, because now every other pilot will realize that the life's of little children are in my hands, and i cant fuck up not on time.

we can still discuss the topic at hand, but we need to tone it down before we get the :no bad words on the pub pm:.

well, in a roundabout way jettajay said that, because if its not safe for his kids its not safe for mine, or anyone Else's, so what else to do with it besides make it the official target?, and build a new school, far far away from the practice area.

funny how you hippies don't understand that if one persons children need to move, then they all need to move, because if that school is a missile magnet then it most definitely should never have children in it, but this isn't a weekly incident, it was a one time thing, ill bet everything i own that school will never be struck by a projectile coming from an American jet again.

i word what I'm trying to say in a bad way I'm sorry, I'm always all blasted on the kind when i get on here.

The fact that it happened at night was probably what led in part to the mistake. Had it been during the day the pilot could have visually verified the target before firing, not that I'm justifying the mistake.

Why the fuck would they be using live ammunition that close to civilians anyways.





Exactly, night or day doesn't matter, they shouldn't even have targets that close to civilians under any circumstances. That's just not justifiable.

it was proven a while ago that the pilots were given amphetamines when they kille dthe canadians soldiers in afgahnistan. saying the pilot who did this is jsut heresay and rumor and not backed up by anything as of yet. but teh afgahnistan one is true and has been proven...it was ALL over the news when it happened (and liek 4 months after)

F-16 attacks New Jersey


Blue State suffers backlash for supporting Kerry

by OfficialWire NewsDesk

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- (OfficialWire) -- 11/05/04 -- While residents of Little Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, prepared for bed Wednesday evening, a lone fighter pilot launched an unprovoked attack against their school?firing as many as 25 rounds from his wing-mounted cannons?in what the military is now calling an accident during the night time raid.

Shortly after 10 p.m., an unidentified pilot of a single F-16 fired at the school and then returned to base at the District of Columbia Air National Guard, based at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.

In fact, the wayward pilot was on a training mission and was supposed to fire at a target at the Warren Grove firing range, about 3 1/2 miles away from school, said Col. Brian Webster, commander of the 177th Fighter Wing of the New Jersey Air National Guard.

Fortunately, the school was closed at the time, and no one was injured, but it normally has 1,800 students in grades 3 through 6.

The cannon fire tore through the roof of the school, according to Little Egg Harbor Township Police Chief Mark Siino. Ceiling tiles fell into classrooms, and there were scratch marks in the asphalt outside the building.

"Are they fuckin' crazy?" asked one shaken neighbor who lives nearby and did not want to give him name. "I live next door and it could have easily been my house they hit," he added

Maybe it has something to do with this :grin:

Air Force report calls for $7.5M to study psychic teleportation
By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY

Star Trek fans may be happy to hear that the Air Force has paid to study psychic teleportation.

But scientists aren't so thrilled.

The Air Force Research Lab's August "Teleportation Physics Report," posted earlier this week on the Federation of American Scientists (FAS) Web site, struck a raw nerve with physicists and critics of wasteful military spending.

In the report, author Eric Davis says psychic teleportation, moving yourself from location to location through mind powers, is "quite real and can be controlled." The 88-page report also reviews a range of teleportation concepts and experiments:

? Quantum teleportation, a technique demonstrated in the last decade that shifts the characteristics, but not the location, of sub-atomic particles at great distances.

? Wormholes, a highly theoretical possibility whereby the intense gravitational field near black holes could rip open entrances to distant locales.

? Psychokinesis, or psychic teleportation. In support of the idea, the report cites UFO reports, Soviet and Chinese studies of psychics and U.S. military studies of spoon-bending phenomena.

"It is in large part crackpot physics," says physicist Lawrence Krauss of Case Western Reserve University, author of The Physics of Star Trek, a book detailing the physical limits that prevent teleportation. He describes the Air Force report as "some things adapted from reasonable theoretical studies, and other things from nonsensical ones."

Some experts have long criticized what they see as a military sweet tooth for junk science. A "remote viewing" project, for example, undertaken by defense intelligence services and declassified in 1994, sought to see whether psychic powers could be employed to spy on the Soviet Union. The teleportation report "raises questions of scientific quality control at the Air Force," the FAS' Steven Aftergood says.

Davis, a physicist with Warp Drive Metrics of Las Vegas, couldn't be reached for comment. The Air Force paid $25,000 for the report, part of a $20.5 million advanced rocket and missile design contract. The report calls for $7.5 million to conduct psychic teleportation experiments.

"The views expressed in the report are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy of the Air Force, the Department of Defense or the U.S. Government," says an Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) statement sent to USA TODAY. "There are no plans by the AFRL Propulsion Directorate for additional funding on this contract."

Explaining why the lab sponsored the study, AFRL spokesman Ranney Adams said, "If we don't turn over stones, we don't know if we have missed something."

no .... I heard about otd thru hearsay and rumors not that the pilots are given amphetamines. I agree with that.

I do not disagree with giving pilots amphetamines  (if i was a pilot...id sure as hell want some phet :smile:  )...so long as they are not in the air for too long...or have too much to give them over confidence.

Some pilots fly sorties reaching ten hours.. and 24 hour missions are run to some extent (transports)

As far as too much confidence... in the military pilot culture you are breed to become confident and cocky in your actions. You are flying a multi-million dollar, supersonic, highly agile war machine capable of killing many lives at the touch of a button or pull of a trigger... sometimes it's pretty hard not to get cocky/over-confident.

I bet they are still handing out amphetamines to pilots. That was, apparently, the cause of the friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan where 4 Canadian soldiers were killed and many more wounded. Pilot dropped a 500 lbs bomb on them in the middle of the night.

Amphetamines for people operating sophisticated killing machines. There's a bright idea. :smirk:




What about a sleeping pilot? Operating a sophisticated killing machine is very exhausting work and sometimes it's better to give the pilots amphetamines than to let them fly while sleeping. Amphetamines should only be used in real war if they really need the pilots in the air(training more pilots would be better, but that's very expensive).
