Crashed into the Yellow Sea 100 kilometres west of Osan AB, South Korea at 20:52 hours. The aircraft was part of a four-ship formation on a combat training mission. Eleven hours after the mishap, the body of Captain Keith A. Sands was found. United States Air Force, Navy and Korean Air Force helped in the search. Korean Navy minesweepers found the wreckage, but the USS Salvor (ARS-52) salvaged 300 pieces to the aircraft, but lacked one large portion. This mishap was caused by a combination of the pilot unintentionally maneuvering his aircraft in excess of briefed parameters, and personal injuries and equipment damage sustained during the subsequent ejection. The pilot did eject safely, but sustained injuries which let him to pass away while in the water.
