Airframe was overstressed during tests with two external tanks. G-load limiter was exceeded when control was lost after the aircraft passed through the wake of an F-16. Maximum was to be 7.3 Gs but actually climbed to 11.7 Gs. Flight control software was found to be the problem. The aircraft landed safely but never flew again.
