I was at TLP in Florennes, Belgium and I called back to the squadron in Italy and they were like "AZ your jet crashed!" I was like"What?, it was just here the other day" and the person on the phone said "yeah the wing king was flying and the nose gear wouldn't come down so he nosed it in". I couldn't believe this and sure enough it had and the wing king was ok and all, the jet suffered some damage of course but was ready in time to bomb the crap out of Serbia that spring and summer.

Definitely a great assignment! Everything from Casey Goodwin blowing the engine in his car trying to do a burnout to the Annual Birthday Drunk Fests in Meduno!!
