    Airman Forgets to Lower Wheels, Crashes $136 Million U.K. Fighter Jet

    [size=13pt]Airman Forgets to Lower Wheels, Crashes $136 Million U.K. Fighter Jet[/size]

    A Royal Air Force top gun crash-landed a new $136.3 million Typhoon fighter — apparently after forgetting to put the wheels down during a training exercise in California.

    Yeah, that jet is pretty sick. It's actually a joint venture between several european countries: Italy, England, Germany France... because it's so expensive to produce.

    Something tells me this guy isn't going to be flying them anymore.
