      Two Army soldiers, whose combat duties include working to prevent "friendly fire" mishaps, narrowly avoided harm when an F-16 fighter jet from Hill Air Force Base opened fire on their SUV while driving at the Utah Test and Training Range.

      The incident occurred during a nighttime training mission April 8 in which the fighter pilot was practicing shooting at ground targets. The soldiers were not hit, but did suffer minor injuries "while exiting the vehicle in rough terrain," according to a statement from the base. The sport utility vehicle, a rental from Avis, was damaged in the incident, but base officials declined to say whether it was hit by the jet's 20mm cannon fire or crashed after the soldiers jumped out.

      A friend bought a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee at a small car lot- they got a great deal on it.
      Well, the back window was busted out shortly after by hail, and when cleaning up the glass and replacing the rear window they found several bullets casings in the vehicle. Hmm..

      Agreed. That's definitely from a crash. I mean, there's no way a 20mm cannon could make those holes...

      I'm not sure what to say here...

      The Army rents a truck from Avis (are they short on trucks of their own?), then drives it on a test range

      or that that picture got out, yet they won't say if it was cannon damage or a crash.....

      That explanation is good enough for government work I guess. Classic pic

      Can't remember the full story, but something along the lines of 'Attempted assasination of the Mexican Security Secretary' She survived, but I believe the driver and front passenger were killed. Someone better in Spanish can translate.
