One Whopping Big Claim:

The Air Force is still toting up and verifying claims it has received following the New Jersey fire sparked by an Air National Guard F-16 earlier this year, but the service has revealed that one claim, filed Aug. 1 by the Phoenix Pinelands Corp., is for $197.7 million. The Press of Atlantic City reports that the corporation is a sand mining company based in Little Egg Harbor Township. That one claim amounts to almost the entire $200 million in claims the service currently has received. The review of the incident continues, but it already has resulted in leadership changes within the units involved.
