good radar story with 'happy ending'....







>From the December '98 Guns & Ammo Magazine, pg 113:

"Police in Britain using a radar gun noticed a reading of more than 300
MPH, just before their radar fried. Seconds later, a low-flying Harrier jet
hurtled past. The police complained to the Royal Air Force about the damage
to their equipment, but the police were told they were lucky. The Harrier

ís
target-seeker had locked onto their radar and triggered an automatic
retaliatory air-to-surface attack. Fortunately, for the police, the Harrier
was not armed with missiles."

We should be so lucky!
