On July 26th a couple in San Antonio received a gift courtesy of the USAF - the tail cone from a USAF C-17 aircraft landed in their backyard! Fortunately no one was injured in the incident, nor was there any property damage. Considering the size of the piece it is lucky no one was hurt and no property was damaged.

This is unusual, very unusual. I'm amazed that this happened. It is not common for the military to lose any part of an airplane like this.In the meantime keep your wings straight and level Hersch!
