Hi Debbie--

I've never heard an explanation for the hydrazine, but it wasn't really an 
emergency "landing". The Air National Guard pilot ejected & the plane hit 
an unoccupied summer cottage. The hydrazine might have been in the 
missiles (see story link below). The flight originated in the Madison 
area, but the crash was not in Madison.

Re: [DCHAS-L] Chemical Safety Headlines From Google  (14 articles)

Last week, (I think) I read one of these where an F-16 made an emergency 
landing (in Madison, WI) with hydrazine aboard.  That seems incredibly 
strange to me.  Would anyone in the collective have an idea of why an F-16 
would be carrying hydrazine?  I assumed it was in the crew compartment but 
the news story was typically sketchy.  Hydrazine is an ingredient in 
liquid rocket propellant but this still doesnŐt make sense.
Any ideas?
