Wore the Su-27 colour scheme and numbered '50' at the time of the mishap. The pilot, Captain James Reynolds, did not survive this crash. After performing an F-15 engagement he put his airfraft in a 90° nose down flight, starting recovery too late. He probably misjudged the altitude he was at and the F-16 hit the ground recovering with the pilot not ejecting.
