27 Nov 2006 [msh] 90776 USAF 524 FS 'CC' F-16C Block 40K News Article
Went down over Iraq north of Falluja in western Anbar province at 13:35 hours during a combat mission supporting ground forces. The official cause of the accident was "chanalized attention manifested by the pilots to maintain a constant visual positive identification of targeted enemy vehicles and subsequent target fixation on these vehicles while they were traveling at a high rate of speed". Unfortunately the pilot, Major Troy L. Gilbert of the 309th FS, was killed in this accident.

This jet was the cats ass. She was a code one machine and was beautiful. I killed myself taking care of it but it was worth it. I remember all my buddies ragging me about getting it dirty but there was no denying that fact that I maintained the hell out of it. I think my MC rate with it was a 99.7% which was unheard of and it always rose to the occasion. The best commander I ever served for, Lt Col. Walter Wright used to kill the Coronas so I named her "Corona Express" That name was a perfect fit for our flagship. Its a shame she's no longer with us.
