16 Jun 2000 [msh] 84311 USAF 309 FS 'LF' F-16C Block 25E News Article
First Lieutenant Doyle Pompa ejected safely at 7:45 hours. The location was fourteen miles southwest of Sells, Arizona on the Barry M. Goldwater range. The pilot was engaged in an air-to-air fighting training. It was later revealed that the student pilot without realizing, pulled the throttle into the cut-off location during the intensity of the exercise. An airstart was performed, but seemed unsuccessfull due to the pilot applying the Critical Action Procedures (CAPs) incorrectly. All Luke based F-16's were grounded as a result. The mishap was not a fleet wide problem, so flying resumed on June 20th.
