Bob Verkroost ejected from F-16A J-625 (311 sqn) while on low-level training in Goose-Bay, Canada. He was assigned to 312 sqn then. The crash was described in the Dutch Air Force "Veilig Vliegen" magazine. Later, he ejected from F-16A J-359 (314 sqn) just after take-off from Leeuwarden after an engine failure. This probably makes him the only Dutch pilot to eject twice from an F-16.
