16 Nov 2000 [msh] 89104 USAF 68 FS 'MY' F-16C Block 40G News Article
Suffered a mid-air collision with a civilian Cessna 172N (N73829) at 15:56 hours. It happened at 1,200 feet near Sarasota, Florida. The Cessna pilot, Jacques Oliver, was killed. His aircraft came down in a golf coarse. Captain Greg Kreuder tried to take his F-16 for a landing at MacDill AFB, but the engine failed and the cockpit was shattered, forcing him to punch out. The F-16 came down in a wooded area four miles south of the Cessna's. The Cessna pilot never responded to Miami control to help avoid the collision. The F-16 was in a two ship formation on a ground attack training sortie. It turns out the F-16's were using the wrong frequency to contact Tampa, which had control of the airspace. Only Miami was able to keep contact. The aircraft was on loan to the 69 FS at the time of the accident.
