    On the great grand scheme of things, thats probably a 3 of 10 on the weird **** o meter that happens on ranges. In Saudi Arabia, a group of our A-10s got some really bad range guidance from the Saudi FACs and laid out a combined total of about 4600 rounds of 30 MM party mix on one of a Saudi Princes bus caravan (luckily they werent on the buses-the 30 mm cannon with the targeting system can be surgical). We have seen industrial dumpsters mistaken for targets in ZAB Spain and bombs dropped behind training units at the Fort Lewis range...and those were live fire incidents.

    In other news, thousands of civilian casualties at the Great Barrier Reef. Rescue teams and with specially trained dolphins digging through the rubble.

    During Desert Shield, we had two pilots sent to do a practice bombing run somewhere(with live bombs). They somehow got the information wrong or just ended up at the wrong place, and ended up bombing a small oasis where camels where watered. I got to see the HUD video, camels are not supposed to fly through the air doing flips...

    The pilot's callsigns where of course changed to Camel and Shredder.

    Not funny but for some reason I see an old and weathered 'Gus' the camel sitting with his grandkids and great grand kids telling that story. So there we were, at the oasis fueling up, when out of nowhere....

    We needed to level out the sea floor some for the oil platform we will be putting there. No big deal.
