The aircraft was being towed from the Foxtrot taxiway (next to the alternative runway) coming from the washing area called a "birdbath" when the right wing hit some of the "birdbath" structure. The TSgt who was driving for some reason swerved the aircraft towards the birdbath instead of keeping it in the center of the taxiway. The structure of the birdbath stuck on the right wing pulling it off the taxiway. Most of the damage was the result of the nose gear collapsing in contact with the soft ground

The best thing about Korea is also the worst thing..... they keep sending me back and my jet got towed into a bird bath though. Not cool.

I took over the jet in April 2017. It became the 354 Ops Group CC's jet. It is great jet. Getting ready to go into phase with 7700 hours. One of the best jets I've crewed in the 25 years I've been around the F16. Would love to add a photo in it's OG grab but I can't figure out a way to do it.
