Not a U.S. aircraft or in this country! Couldn't have happend here, no American aircraft are ever armed unless on alert, and there are very specific safety procedures that have to take place before one of those aircraft is moved, including removing all 680 rounds of ammo from the aircraft and the crew chief has signed off on it, and his assistant confirms both the gun safety flag is installed and the ammo has been removed!
Fake news story, that F-16 was not shot by any thing, it was burned or had a near explosion. If it had been hit by a 20 mm, there wouldn't be much left to identify it as a F-16!
I refuse to say anything negative about Iron Eagle or any of the enjoyable patriotic 80’s movies. Next you’ll be asking me to criticize FireFox or Kelly’s Heroes.
