    Nose tire blew during takeoff causing the aircraft to depart the runway at Al Kharj AB, Saudi Arabia around 9:00 local. The right drop tank hit a runway light. The pilot, Major Androski, ejected safely after the aircraft started to leave the runway, but the aircraft burned up. Mission was intended to be a CAP mission in support of ODS.
