Crashed in a residential area in the small town of Arum, Netherlands due to an unrecoverable engine stall. The pilot ejected safely, but a civilian on the ground was injured. The pilot was Captain Bob Verkroost who also ejected from F-16A J-625 on June 4th, 1988. This probably makes him the only Dutch pilot to eject twice from an F-16.
