B-1 Crash in Qatar

Latest radio news here in states says crew are fine, it did not crash but collided with something while taxiing and caught fire.

I hope something hit the plane and not the other way around. I have never destroyed any of my Uncle Sam's stuff (at least as far as Uncle Sam knows) but the paperwork will be horrendous. Destroying something worth about a quarter of a billion in not likely to be career enhancing.
Not the first time.

In September 2005 a B1 burst into flame after landing at Andersen following a landing gear problem that resulted in leaking hydraulic fluid flaming off.

An estimated $32m later it was all better though
