Some days ago, Norway experienced a huge dissaster - materialwise - when they lost a 4 billion NOK (4 milliarder NOK) navy frigate. Cause of navigation issues, they ram into a civilian oil-tanker. Luckily no casualties!

Today was a press-conference, where they (Norwegian Navy) claimed they had mismatched the oiltanker with a landbased stationairy radar-beacon - as the reason why they did not change their course.

Never EVER has this youtube video shown how arrogant some military ppl can be ;)

Video is only about a minute long, and ironically shows the navigationskills of Norwegian Navy ;)

Enjoy :d

PS! Enable sound - that's crucial! :)

This joke from years ago really REALLY came up for real here a few days ago :)

It really happened. A norwegian frigate was doing navigation training, and was told by VHF radio to move - or they would collide. They did not, and they collided.

And, REALLY, on today's press conference they said that they thought the radar-beacon was a land-mark...... Rest is news :)

The headline says: "Thought the tanker was an oil-terminal"........
