    Only if you feel it necessary to use a gratuitous obscenity.

    In formal writing, delete 'the f..k'.

    I'm not sure that "blow it out of the sky" is particularly formal either.
    Shot it down, perhaps.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    You can do pretty much anything you want with the word- it's nothing if not flexible.
