17 Oct 2001 [msh] 88533 USAF 4 FS 'HL' F-16C Block 40D AIB Report
Went off the runway during takeoff roll at Hill AFB at 21:50 hours on a night training flight. The aircraft veered off the runway forcing the pilot to eject. Cause was a blown nose gear tire which resulted in loss of directional control. Pilot, Captain Casey J. Tidgewell, sustained only minor injuries. Damage to the aircraft was significant. Cause of the crash was a blown nose wheel which severed important wires and control was lost.
