Default C-5 Galaxy hit by missile over Baghdad

Seems in the news, a USAF C-5 Galaxy was hit by a unkown missile over
Baghdad, it then landed due to USAF reasons "was a excessive noise
vibrations in a engine" - no mention of missile at all when first
published.

Some noise vibrations eh?, imagine if it was shot down?

USAF PR would describe it as "slight turbelence induced accident".

What is "terbelence"? JGG, do you have a point to any of this crap, or is it
your usual demented product?

I'd also like to know what "terbelence" is. I'm kinda curious about
"turbelence" too.

Oops. It sucks when you screw up trying to copy JGG's creative invective.

It's like turbulence, but less evolved.

Yeah, I knew it happened--my point was directed at JGG's usual assignation
of nefarious intent to the US (in this case USAF), without basis as always.

You might write "a unknown missile" but did the USAF really say "a
excessive noise vibrations", and "a engine"?

I think it is somewhere in Italy, or was it Greece?

I wonder how noticeable a MANPADS hit on a C-5 engine would be,
anyway? Do you think it'd be instantly recognized as such or
initially just "engine trouble" on par with losing a few fan blades?
