    Please post a warning in the future that the video is graphic depicting real death. It doesn't offend me, but TG is a family friendly place and we want to keep it that way.

    That being said, I'm not convinced that's an F-16. Most of the symbology is similar, but they usually are across different platforms. Could be, I'm just not sure.

      it is. did a google search just now on "tgp f16 vid" and first 2 sites i clicked said this...

      F-16 was on such a mission, to hit a house with an LGB when 30+ insurgents left the building en masse to hurry to a nearby engagement with US Marines, which had been going on for hours. The pilot communicates with an FAC either in the air or on the ground, and changes the flight path of the bomb while it is in the air. You can clearly see the "L" flashing in the MFD, and "TGP" is selected.

      I'm assuming that the bomb is a 500-pounder, as MK84s would be overkill in an urban setting where the ROE calls for minimal "collateral damage" .
      In this 30 sec video clip US F16 seems to bomb civilians on the road in Fallujah in Iraq on Saturday April 10th. The pilot communicates with a FAC, and changes the flight path of the bomb while it is in the air. You can clearly see the "L" flashing in the MFD, and "TGP" is selected.

      Lt Col Steven Boylan, Director, Combined Press Information Center, Baghdad told C4 news this:
      "As the F-16 aimed on the building, the pilot saw a group of people come running out of the building, around the corner, and towards the Marine unit under fire. When the pilot queried about the group, the JTAC cleared him to engage...those were the people shooting at the Marines"

        Yeah, it looks like they've got some other goodies we don't have. I wish our video was that clear!
