Pilot landed aircraft short of runway at Hahn AB, Germany after an engine failure. The aircraft came to a stop on the runway and the pilot was able to egress by lifting the canopy from the damaged canopy frame. Pictures show that the jet was destroyed and it broke after the canopy section. But it nevertheless was repaired with parts of 3 other airframes and serves as a static now.
