The aircraft was lost during a close-air-support mission over Iraq at 00.27h local time. Although a 125FS aircraft, the pilot was part of the 112th FS. The pilot, Lieutenant Colonel Kevin Sonnenberg, didn't eject and was consequently killed during the mishap. The cause of the crash was spatial disorientation.

I crewed this jet on trips to Hawaii and Nellis. She was the high hour flier in Hawaii and was trouble-free for me in Nellis for Red Flag. She was a great jet and I miss her!
