Default Missile missing from US Army plane

NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - An Apache helicopter from Fort Drum in upstate New York is missing a missile. Army officials say the non-explosive dummy missile fell off a plane during a flight from Fort Drum to the New York Air Show in Orange County on Friday.

They described the missing missile as 64 inches long, 7 inches wide and weighing 100 pounds with the words U-S Army painted on the side.

The dummy missile is used to help simulate the weight of an operational missile during flight and would pose no threat to the general public.

The Army is asking anyone who may have found it to call the 10th Mountain Division operations center at 315-772-6324 FREE. They say that if you find it, you can also call your local police.
Well thank G-d its a dummy missile.

Wouldn't be surprised if it's hanging on the wall of someone's basement recreation room at this very moment!

Had to laugh at the media referring to an Apache gun ship (or attack helicopter for the uninitiated) as a "plane". In addition: this is nothing but a way to invent news. So what if the dumb thing is missing? The military has plenty of things such as this that are provided by company or battalion level S4 sections. These items are referred to as "training aids" or TA's and normally are clearly marked as such. However: I'm sure the average Islamic idiot wouldn't know the difference between a live missile and a prop one as they also don't know the difference between a real prophet of the Lord and a charlatan like Mohammad.

Just FYI: the most interesting TA that I ever worked with during my time was a solid wooden model of a coffin that we used for practice before a burial detail.

Exclamation White Sands Missile Range

When I lived in New Mexico the Government was always running adds on the radio and TV for missiles that "White Sands" had lost; with a reward for information leading to recovery. Then there was the escape of "agents" that killed hundreds of sheep and the occasional shepherd watching over the sheep.
