Collided with F-16C (88-0403) and crashed at Kunsan AFB, South Korea. After the pilot, Major Mark Moore, ejected, the aircraft slided down on the runway with the gear torn off but was thought to have been a complete write-off. The aircraft received a landing clearance, while the other was taking off at the same time. The pilot of 88-0403 was able to land his plane with some damage to the left leading edge flap of the wing between stations no. 1 & 2 .

Many great friends and times. Not a big fan of the area. I commuted daily from West Palm Beach, FL (96 miles each way) instead of living in the area. We enjoyed many Miami Dolphins games together. Great tailgaiting parties. We had some good tdys. I worked for a great boss, Lance Robertson. Played great practical jokes on Jeff Dean.. Good Times...

I probably learned more about my job on this F-16 then any other one, mainly because it was broke all the time or because I was stationed at Kunsan. As Bull mentioned it was high flyer in the ORI though so it performed when it counted the most. I also was on alert duty with it and it performed great. I just read it survived a crashed landing around 2009, even after the pilot ejected. It had a few nicknames, all related to having 3 sixes on the tail.
