51st Fighter Wing, Osan Air Base (Official) (Facebook post)

UPDATE: After landing from a training mission, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot ejected from an F-16 Fighting Falcon assigned to the 36th Fighter Squadron at approximately 5 p.m.

The pilot was taken to the 51st Medical Group clinic and was listed in good condition.

"We are relieved that our Mustang pilot ejected safely, and is now in the good hands of our medical team," said Col. Andrew Hansen, 51 Fighter Wing commander. "We are currently focused on thoroughly investigating the cause of this incident in order to minimize the chances of it happening again in the future."

A board of officers will investigate the incident as part of a safety investigation board.

Anyone know the tail number involved?

(As this had a good ending with regards to the pilot this should be OK to ask ;) )
