No official confirmation, but first reports are that a B-1 bomber has crashed upon landing at a US Air Force base in Qatar.
DUBAI (Reuters) – A U.S. B-1 bomber exploded while landing in a Qatari air base due to a technical fault on Friday, Qatar-based Al Jazeera television reported.
The television station did not say if anyone was hurt in the incident at the Al Udeid air base south of the Qatari capital Doha. It said earlier a B-52 plane had exploded.
A U.S. air force spokesman said he had no immediate report of such an incident and would check.
