Nine hours? More like nine minutes.

CBS said the pilots were on break and it would have taken 9 hours to get them back. I guess the work rules are such that they military pilots are entitled to a full break of 9 hours between shifts.

Hey, don't shoot the messenger. I'm only reporting what I heard on the CBS Evening News as an explanation as to why those jets did not take off.
