Crashed at about 13:00 hours, ten miles north of Luke AFB. The pilot, Lt.Col. James Bright, was on a routine air-to-air training mission and ejected safely. The crash was the result of a mid-air collision in which the other aircraft, F-16D #90-0730, landed safely. Cause of the mishap was error due to improper rejoin procedure.
