Damaged beyond repair in an aborted takeoff from Shaw AFB after multiple bird strike. The pilot was injured in the mishap. Eye witness account by Scott Gandy "I witnessed the mishap from in front of Hanger 1200. Aircraft had birdstrikes right after rotation, pilot then planted airplane on runway and attempted a departure-end barrier engagement. The cable bounced after being run over by the NLG wheel and struck the C/L tank, rupturing it. The spilling fuel was then ignited. The pilot ran the canopy up, over and down the radome he went. It seemed like the jet burned up in two minutes."
