a google search reveals no "new news" on Airman First Class Todd Blue's death...

no news is good news, right? [Roll Eyes]

ponder

ok so i've been pondering... [Smile]
there are six links there, two are for the same person, two are for people who died before the incident.. That whole story stinks.. it looks like they are trying to inflate the number of "strange deaths" but its only really 3 people, one, cpt.Frueh was actually on leave during the nuke indicent
The other accident was the soldiers fault for passing on a motorcycle in a no passing zone to the LEFT of a car turning left. Very hard to "suicide" someone by their own actions.

the only one that seems wierd is Todd blue, but lets not rule out suicide. not saying thats what happened but lets look at things logically, the rest of this story is bunk so maybe this is just a young man who died and thats it.

70 punished in accidental B-52 flight
By PAULINE JELINEK, Associated Press Writer

quote:
WASHINGTON - The Air Force said Friday it would punish 70 airmen involved in the accidental, cross-country flight of a nuclear-armed B-52 bomber following an investigation that found widespread disregard for the rules on handling such munitions.

"There has been an erosion of adherence to weapons-handling standards at Minot Air Force Base and Barksdale Air Force Base," said Maj. Gen. Richard Newton, the Air Force deputy chief of staff for operations.

Newton was announcing the results of a six-week probe into the Aug. 29-30 incident in which the B-52 was inadvertently armed with six nuclear-tipped cruise missiles and flown from Minot in North Dakota to Barksdale in Louisiana without anyone noticing the mistake for more than a day.

The missiles were supposed to be taken to Louisiana, but the warheads were supposed to have been removed beforehand.

A main reason for the error was that crews had decided not to follow a complex schedule under which the status of the missiles is tracked while they are disarmed, loaded, moved and so on, one official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak on the record.
