On October 20, 2005 at around 20.30 hours the aircraft was starting its engines for a night training mission. The right engine ingested a nose landing gear "remove before flight" safety pin/flag. Damage to the engine was $6.7 million but there was no damage to the rest of the aircraft. The pin was pulled out by ground crew during engine run which is not proper procedure as it should be pulled prior to engine start. Suction pulled it out of his hand.
