The military released more details Friday about the accidental dropping of a dummy bomb by an Oklahoma Air National Guard F-16.

Military officials say an investigation found didn't find anything unusual in the equipment or pilot's actions.  The 25-pound practice bomb fell into a Tulsa apartment last week, knocking out power and damaging the building.  The accident didn't hurt anyone.

The F-16 lost the bomb while flying back to the Tulsa Air Guard Base, from a training operation.  As a precaution, all training missions are being flown without any practice bombs for the time being.
