Tulsa police confirmed early Friday morning that a military missile hit a Tulsa apartment complex.  It happened at the Canyon Creek Apartments near 51st Street and South Wheeling.

A neighbor sent 2NEWS a picture of the missile, which the Air National Guard confirmed was one of theirs, according to Tulsa police.

A police officer said the training missile fell off a military jet during a training mission and hit an electrical shed attached to the building around 3 p.m. Thursday, knocking out power to two buildings.  He said if the missile had landed just feet away from the shed it would have hit an occupied apartment unit.

I think that happens more than we think.  They usually happen out in the middle of nowhere in the training areas.  At least that missle wasn't armed, otherwise say byebye to the apartment.

They were able to keep the news off of it for almost 24 hrs. It happened at 3:00 pm and it was not on the 6:00 or 10:00 news. Had a resident not taken pictures it would have been covered up. This is 3/4 mile East of my offices.

from today's Air Force Association daily online update:
 
Unexpected Visitor: An F-16 fighter from the Oklahoma Air National Guard's 138th Fighter Wing inadvertently dropped a 22-pound BDU-33 non-explosive dummy bomb on an apartment complex in Tulsa, Okla., March 13 while it was en route to a training range in Kansas to practice bombing runs. According to a March 15 report by NewsOK.com, the F-16 took off at around 3 p.m. local time from the Tulsa Air National Guard Base en route to the Smokey Hill Gunnery Range in Salina, Kan. Shortly thereafter the BDU-33, one of six such bombs carried by the airplane for the training mission, separated and crashed through the apartment complex, damaging the foundation and knocking out electrical power, but injuring no one. The pilot was reportedly unaware of the bomb's release until his sixth bombing run when spotters did not see a sixth bomb hit the ground, the Tulsa Worldreported March 15. A safety investigation board has been convened.
