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

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!
