The aircraft crashed during a routine airshow demonstration flight. The pilot managed to eject safely. This is the first write-off of an UAEAF F-16E block 60. The pilot, Dan Levin - a Lockheed Martin Test Pilot - apparently entered a loop too low or had a density altitude problem. The F-16 hit the ground in full burner with a high sink rate. Fortunately Dan ejected but his chute didn't have time to fully deploy so he suffered many broken bones and a punctured lung.
