But Officials Still Won't Pinpoint Crash Site
The Pentagon Thursday identified the pilot lost when his U2
reconnaissance aircraft went down in Southwest Asia. Officially, no
one would actually say where the aircraft went down -- only that it
crashed on a mission supporting troops in Afghanistan.
The pilot was identified as 43-year old USAF Major Duane W.
Dively of Rancho Cordova, CA. He was assigned to the 1st
reconnaissance Squadron at California's Beale Air Force Base.
The cause of Wednesday's crash was still under investigation on
Friday morning. While officials wouldn't say exactly where the
aircraft went down, one military source who asked not to be
identified said the spy plane crashed in the United Arab Emirates.
He also said there was no indication the high-flying aircraft was
brought down by hostile fire.
