Aircraft crashed on McMullen range (Yankee/Dixie) near Tilden, TX. The aircraft crashed after the 4th pass on the bomb circle dropping BDU-33's. After the 3rd stage compressor let fly, this caused a massive fire/explosion and failure of the tail. The aircraft departed controlled flight at 1,000 AGL and pilot ejected safely 70 miles south of San Antonio, TX. This jet had only a centerline bag and it stayed on. The pilot was cleared by the accident board and flew successfully for 2 1/2 years after the incident and was promoted
