Departed the runway while landing and the pilot ejected safely. The fuselage was destroyed from station 88 forward. The cockpit was burned out by the ejection seat. All three gear were heavily damaged as well as the engine intake. A team from the 649th Combat Logistics Support Squadron based out of Hill AFB, Utah went to Egypt to survey the damage and bring the aircraft back to the United States. It arrived at Hill AFB, Utah in the summer of 2000. The aircraft only had 150 flying hours and estimated at $3.2 million to fix was deemed worth while. As of early February 2005 the aircraft has been returned to flying status and is waiting to be delivered back to the Egyptian Air Force.
