    Collided with #85-1549 shortly after landing at Nellis AFB around 11:20h local. The mishap was caused by pilot error of both landing aircraft. The aircraft didn't vacate the runway in a correct manner with the other aircraft coming in too hard and landing long on the runway without applying proper braking and aerobrake procedures caused this mishap. The pilot escaped unhurt. Total repair cost is estimated at $ 5.4 million, still pening whether it will be performed.
