Crashed 19 kilometres off the coast of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The F-16 was in a simulated air-to-air combat training exercise from Shaw AFB. The pilot, Captain James Sevick, ejected safely and was subsequently rescued by a Coast Guard helicopter. In August the wreckage of the aircraft was recovered from a depth of fifty feet. Cause of the crash was a faulty bearing in the engine which controls airflow. The result was low thrust and inability to retain altitude. Wreckage kept at Shaw AFB.
