BREAKING: U.S. Military Plane Crashes In Libya

The U.S. military says an Air Force F-15 Strike Eagle has crashed in Libya but it was not shot down.

Vince Crawley, a spokesman for the Africa Command, says both crew members ejected and sustained minor injuries.

He says one crew member has been safely recovered and the operation to recover the other is under way.

Crawley said Tuesday the plane was not shot down and may have suffered a mechanical problem.

    This is the manner by which we continue to lose our possible advantage in technology. This plane will be examined in detail --- our knowledge will be in their hands. Missiles which do not explode are examined and re-examined. We continue to just give away our knowledge and just how can we stop it? When in viet nam, after examining an unexploded rocket from North Vietnam, we used it as a big ash tray (about waist high). Secrets abound in war and are lost forever to the enemy when they do not explode.--- or for that matter when they do explode. Be careful for what you ask for, you might get it put back on your plate.
