Fog at Kunsan AB, Korea caused the flight of two to divert to Kimhae International Airport also in Korea. Conditions at this airport were raining. The first aircraft landed but hydroplaned, resulting in the pilot using the end of runway barrier. The second aircraft landed and hydroplaned, but had to steer off the runway in order to avoid hitting the other aircraft which had just taken the barrier. Following this the aircraft struck the MA-1A barrier chain which tore off the entire undercarriage. Instructor pilot Major David L. Orr exited the aircraft safely without ejecting. Damage was a destroyed ECM pod, undercarriage and debris which was ingested into the engine.
