Pilot ejected with minor injuries and the F-16 fell into a field near Atlanta, Kansas. Cause was found to be engine failure after one of the bearings assemblies failed. The engine shut down, causing the pilot to attempt a restart. After the wingman saw fire coming out of the engine, he called for him to eject.
