    Actual Write off Date

    I believe this aircraft is F-16C #89-2110 of the 308th FS that was written off at Homestead on April 24, 1992 just before the hurricane hit in August. The wreckage was put on a truck and in storage and when the hurrican hit caused even more damage, but the aircraft had already been written off. Note the burn and damage that was from the forced emergency landing.

    482FW Weapons EOR crew were the first ones at the crash site. Jack Bartleson helped pull the pilot clear of the fire.
