Numerous reports tonight that an F-16 from the 162nd FW out of Tucson crashed near Safford, AZ. No word on the status of the pilot. Rescue forces were on their way to the crash site.

Local news had a picture of a canopy, and a small creator. The fact that no one has mentioned a pilot yet has me worried for that crew.

Title should read Safford, not Stafford. I had a feeling it was this area; I spent some working hours there this summer. If the aircraft went down in Greenlee County, I'm pleasantly surprised it didn't manage to hit part of the Morenci mine.
