My best crew chiefing memories are with this F-16, it was a fantastic jet with the best crew I had the pleasure to crew a jet with. I was supposed to crew it one last time in June 2004 but we lost it prior to that date.
We lost 86-0260 to mid-air accident with 85-1555, the accident took away two of our finest aircraft.
This jet was involved in a mid-air with one of our other jets. I was called at my civilian job they day it happened and asked if I wanted to go out and help pick up the pieces. I declined that one. From what I understand the nose gear door with my name on it was the biggest intact piece.
