Flew into the ground near Aviano AB, Italy. Pilot ejected safely. The cause was determined that both AOA heaters failed and ice formed on the probes, driving the probes full down. This caused the LE flaps to full down and the aircraft flipped on its back. The aircraft impacted a snow covered slop, inverted, and slid to a stop. The jet was enroute from Torrejon AB, Spain when the accident occured. During ejection, the pilot received a gash to his jaw from his parachute harness.
