This story should have some interesting follow-up:

Federal authorities are investigating why a military rocket traveling about 600 mph crashed into a building at a Tulsa apartment complex Thursday evening.

Jeremy Isbell, who lives at the Canyon Creek Apartments, 2102 E. 51st St., said he was told by a federal investigator that the rocket came from a military plane. It crashed into a building that houses electrical equipment and knocked out an apartment wall and power to the complex.

Tulsa Police Capt. Rick Helberg confirmed that early Friday.

A federal agent told him that a military pilot thought the rocket, which had a “dummy warhead” on it, had been dropped over a Kansas field but that the pilot never saw the smoke trail that would have indicated that the rocket did indeed drop.

It appears the warhead wasn’t the only dummy on the plane. Hat tip to Dave Barry. ..bruce w..
