U.S. military plane crashes in Kyrgyzstan

An American military refueling plane took off and crashed in Kyrgyzstan on Friday, Kyrgyz and U.S. officials said.

Three people were on board, said Bolot Sharshenaliev of the Kyrgyz Emergencies Ministry. A ministry spokeswoman had previously said there were five. The U.S. military didn't give the number of those on the plane and said "the status of the crew is unknown."

The plane was a U.S. Air Force KC-135 tanker aircraft, according to the U.S. 376th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs Transit Center at Manas, near Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The crew and aircraft are assigned to the transit center.

      Chrissy don't forget the stories on the main page about the Bengahzi coverup and Christians being forced in the closet while gays are told to come out. Liberals can't hide their lies forever, what happens in the dark eventually comes to light. Congradulations liberals, you have done a better job of corrupting and destroying America than Al Quaeda wishes they could.

      @chrissy – I know. That's why I was wondering why these new stories have not been included here in the TJI blog.
      I see the twisted mod is still deleting posts, so that answers at least one question. Nothing like nepotism, eh?

    I have done nothing to destroy this world thanks @ hamsta. Ive only tried to make it a better place by helping people less fortunate than me and i hardly think God will condemm me for that. And i only worry about shameing him and my children everyone else doesnt matter.

    Hey banasy Ingsoc is becoming reality in Florida. Palm Beach Sherriff wants to set up a hotline for neighbors to rat on each other. He said " I want you to call us if the guy down the street hates government."

    Lol @ wut, if you go to the tech section on the homepage theres an article about "what to do when your favorite site closes." It kinda sounds like TJI to me.

    Why would you use Jet Fuel in a Race car? It is closer to kerosene than gasoline and would, if you could even get it to work in anything other than a diesel, run like crap. In your infinite wisdom there Hamsta, you probably got confused between Jet A and 100LL, but since the rest of your crap is BS, who would expect anything accurate out of your comments.
