According to a man named Mark who called in from the Airport to 96Rock, the F-18s were taking off in tandem, but the second pilot decided to show off and hit his afterburners. He then lost control, bounced a couple times and then ejected.
Last I heard the RDU Airport was closed for the afternoon. No idea when flights will start again.
Eh, I didn't vote either. The mayor was going to win in a landslide and my local alderthingy was going to win handily too. I had no reason to vote against either of them, so I just allowed the universe to unfold as it should without making any waves.
