Call to reveal more on $37m jet crash

An environmental group (Australian Conservation Foundation) has called on the United States Navy to provide more information on the fate of the FA-18 Hornet strike fighter plane which ditched in the sea.

"Even though this is an accident we would hope the US Navy, in cooperation with Australian authorities, would ensure this plane was removed or give us some very good reasons why not,"

I've got a good reason why you wouldn't go out and haul a pile of junk off the ocean floor;

The pilot ditched into the sea around 200km south-east of Brisbane...

Any idea how much that operation would cost? For what benefit? To stop a couple of hundred kilos of avtur leaking out? Seriously, don't you have something better to do with yourselves?
