25 Oct 2002 [msh] 89006 USAF 4 FS 'HL' F-16C Block 40E
Destroyed in a mid-air collision with F-16C (#89-2111). Capt. David Rosmann, ejected safely. The mishap was caused by the failure of both pilots to properly deconflict their flight paths during a tactical turn. Other contributing factors included: loss of situational awareness, misinterpretation of closure and visual cues, task misprioritization and channelization, and expectancy.
