Probe blames pilot error for inactive bomb dropped outside training range near Misawa AB last fall

2020/04/13

The bomb, dropped Nov. 6 from an F-16CM fighter jet assigned to the 14th Fighter Squadron, hit the ground outside Draughon Range, a government-owned bombing range 15 miles north of Misawa Air Base, the Air Force said in a news release Sunday.

The investigation also concluded that none of the pilots had generated the sensor point of interest on which the bomb ultimately landed.
The investigation described it as "spuriously generated" but did not elaborate.
