    USAF F-16C block 30 #86-0282 of the 80th FS at Kunsan AB, Korea. The aircraft was being towed on June 21st, 2004 from a washing area called a "birdbath" when the right wing hit some of the "birdbath" structure. That structure is still stuck on the right wing as can be seen in this picture. Most of the damage was the result of the nose gear collapsing in contact with the soft ground. [USAF photo]
