Did you take it? - was posted on the web - if so do you have the location and year taken?

Don't remember seeing any upgraded ROKAF Block 32s before.

I didn't upload that in the forum because it is just taken by mobile phone not good quality camera.
It was taken in June 25, 2016 at Chung-Ju Air Base.

BTW, our ROKAF F-16s photo album is still missing photos of eight KF-16s.

Four of them were already written off, but even vintage photos of their debris or wrecks are welcome. 8(

As I'm Chinese, not Korean, I can't plough through Korean blogs and websites as easily as I can through Chinese ones. 8b

BTW, according to F-16.net aircraft database, ROKAF F-16 92-4016 was W/O on 06 Aug 1997.

Amongst English newspapers, details about this accident, esp pilot's rank and name, seem hard to find (I tried), if partly because another ROK aircraft crashed on that same day.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_Air_Flight_801

Korean Air Flight 801 (KE801, KAL801) was a scheduled international passenger flight operated by Korean Air.
The flight crashed on August 6, 1997, on approach to Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport, in the United States territory of Guam, killing 228[a] of the 254 people aboard.

August 6, 1997-1:56 PM One air force KF-16 fighter jet crashed into a rice paddy behind Yeoju Technical College in Gyeonggi-do due to engine failure. Major Choi Won-ki (최원기), pilot (36, 32 construction) escaped. The crash was found to have been caused by the refusal of fuel supply due to corrosion and rupture of the fuel conduit (Pf4).

News article:

I also noted a 2nd crash in 1997. September 18, 1997-The KF-16 fighter plane of the Air Force Seosan Base, which was in training flight at Dodang 1-ri, Mamam-myeon, Seosan-si, Chungnam, crashed. The pilot escaped and was found to have been caused by the refueling of the fuel conduit (Pf4) as it ruptured.

Apologies for any translation difference. I put the Korean name since its easier to google in Korean. No name mentioned for the 2nd crash.

Thanks much, dude. (_ _)

As said before, I presume South Korea has the same on-line archives of BBS, blogs, newspapers, &c, as Japan and Taiwan, but I just don't know the Korean language to access them, even with Google Translate. (T_T)

So, for ROKAF 92-4016 that crashed on 1997 / 08 / 06, the pilot was Major CHOI Won Ki (36).
