US Air Force flying too low at Tacoma Mall
There was not enough ground clearance for a tractor-trailer rig sponsored by the US Air Force http://airforce.com at Tacoma Mall on Saturday when its trailer got high centered on one of the planting strips on the south side of the mall. Mall Security and the services of a Class C tow truck driver were working to free the big-rig. It seemed ironic with our being a global super power militarily that everything ground to a halt for the Air Force spinning its wheels in a shopping center's flower bed right here at home in a large US city. The driver must have been quite embarrassed finding himself and the flashy truck he was responsible for in that predicament.
