The pilot, Lt. Wouter Rombouts, had to make an emergency landing at Solenzara, Corse. The problem occured after coming back from an air-to-air firing mission above the sea when he had a master caution and decided to land immediately. There seemed to be problems with the brakes. The procedure in this case is the landing with the arrestor hook. The pilot had only minor injuries. Wouter Rombouts is the same pilot that crash-landed its F-16 on December 9th, 2003 with its collegue Ronny Vaerten
