Damaged in flight during an air refueling with a KC-10A #83-0081 at 10:31 hours. The aircraft landed safely but it is estimated to be some time to be repaired as a bulkhead was severely damaged. Closure rate of the F-16 to the KC-10 was slightly higher then normal. The boom operator pulled the boom up too quickly and in an effort to prevent the boom from hitting the tail of the KC-10 the boom operator overcompensated and the boom came back down hitting the F-16. This was barely a class A mishap.
USAF 175 FS
Won't be repaired as damage is too extensive.
