And You Though a Fender Bender at the Dealership was Bad

Jeff gets an expensive no-prize smashed to bits for bringing us news that an F/A-22 Raptor has crashed:

In the first reported crash of the military's next generation fighter jet, an F/A-22 Raptor slammed into the ground and exploded during takeoff at Nellis Air Force Base Monday afternoon.

The pilot got out fine, so this is more a serious problem than a tragedy. They probably hadn't even taken the dealer's sticker off it yet.

Those damn dealer stickers can cause some funny drag.

Imagine the poor base commander. Not only does he lose a new and expensive plane, but one of his firetrucks rolls over on the way. Poor bastard is probably having his ass chewed from here to Norway...
