Got to work to day and saw an AWACS sitting on the east runway minus the nose gear. Happened late Friday night. Don't know the cause.

I love how the Air Force website article stated that the AWACS and its crew were "deployed" to Red Flag from Tinker. :roll:

"Deployed"? Really? I'll bet they don't want to swap deployments with my squadron. Let's call it what it really is folks...a TDY!, kiss my @$$!

Air Force Times reported investigation concluded that it was pilot error. Any details?
