US Air Force - AFMC F-16s

An explosion ripped the F-16B block 1 #78-0097 into two pieces and scattered debris across the Eglin AFB range on August 19th. The explosion was a test of the flight termination system to be used in the QF-16. The purpose was to demonstrate that the FTS design will be sufficient to immediately terminate the flight of a QF-16 as well as determine a range safety debris footprint.
