    well, the army should pay for it, since it was not on the live fire range when it was shot.

    they are soooo lucky to be alive.

    WTF?
    I never heard about this, and I live in Utah.

    Dugway is in the middle of Skull Valley about 60 miles west of Salt Lake City. I was just outside of Dugway in a little settlemnet called Iosepa(Hawaiian for Joseph) over Memorial weekend.

    I'm not sure why the pilot thought he should be firing at a moving SUV. F16 targeting is precise enough to distinguish between some crap bunker or abandoned vehicle and a moving, running vehicle. Didn't his Co or mission control tell him what he was going to be doing? If his flight that night didn't include demolishing a Suburban...?

    I'd be willing to bet that they drag cars/trucks out there for firing practice. Pilot figured it was fresh meat.

    Wonder why the tires are flat? perhaps bullet frags that hit the ground near the suv.. still odd.
