    I remember the Gary Powers U2 incident in 1960. The Cold War caused a lot more tension.

    My prayers are with the pilots family and friends. This just shows how dangerous our war against terrorism happens to be as it continues. :(

    Unfortunate....Supposedly the U2 is an incredibly hard-to-fly plane, so, talented as the pilot would have to have been to fly it, I would not be surprised if this occured because they lost control during a landing, etc. (nor would I fault them for it, considerin I can barely handle a Honda).
