    I am not sure if you all are aware but I work for US Airways and I was on the ramp at PHX the day this happened. I was hanging out between flights at B27 and I had my camera out. I looked out to the horizon and had a glimpse of the 737 and there was two small specks flying all around this bird. I was like what the heck. I looked through my view finder and was able to figure out that those two objects were F16 escorting this bird in. I went to snap some photos and I got a fEE error code on the camera. WTF come on camera, so I turned it off and on. Same code, well crap guess I will just get watch the show. This birds waited till the WN smoked her mains then blasted off about 5 ft from the deck. I tell you this was the coolest thing ever. Just wish I could have got the dam photo.
