Thanks for this update. We do know about the switch between ROC and Luke. Those have been processed in the DB already.

Taipei, Aug. 31 (CNA) An F-16 fighter jet overran a runway while attempting to land at an airbase in southern Taiwan on Tuesday, but the pilot was not injured, according to the Air Force Command Headquarters.

The incident occurred at around 6:32 a.m. when an F-16, tail number 6829, plowed into the ground when landing at Pingtung Air Base.

The pilot was rehearsing for the upcoming Han Kuang military exercises, which will be held Sept. 13-17 and will include emergency takeoff and landing drills by fighter planes on public highways.

In a statement, the Air Force said the pilot was not injured and the plane sustained only slight damage. An investigation committee has been set up to look into the cause of the incident, it said.

F-16V. Formerly F-16B Block 20.
6829. US S/N 93-0850. C/N TB-29.
ROCAF, based at Hua Lien AB.

Lawn dart.

6:32 AM, during landing, after drag chute opened, overran runway, and nose stabbed into grass, at Ping Tung North AB.

Two pilots didn't eject, were OK, and opened canopy.
Both were Lieutenant Colonel.

Nose and front landing gear lightly damaged.

Raised by crane, and towed to hangar for repair.

AAMs at wing tips, and drop tank at belly.

Accident F-16V was second of at least three landings.
Behind accident F-16V, a Mirage 2000 aborted landing.

Reporters interviewed ROCAF F-16 retired instructor pilot HUANG Yang De.
He commented landing seemed standard, with speed brakes opened at maximum 60 degrees, and began braking.
He suspected the pilots opened the drag chute, when braking was less effective than expected, and pilots wanted to overrun runway at controllable speed.
If pilots shut down engine as trained, then aircraft would receive minimal damage.
He suspected the drag chute was unplanned, as control tower had to arrange personnel to remove the drag chute from the runway before the next landing.
Other factors included insufficient braking, or wet runway.

After all, could have landed with tail hook and arresting wires.

8 SEP 2021:
ROCAF claimed accident cause was human error.

Runway was "shortened" to emulate Jia Dong combat readiness highway.
Accident pilot misjudged landing speed, landing spot, and drag chute timing.

Accident F-16 front-seater was grounded for one month, and replaced by another pilot for subsequent training and real Han Kuang 37 Exercise.

Accident F-16 was second of at least three landings.
Before accident F-16, an IDF landed.

Accident F-16 was a spare F-16, and wouldn't be flown during the real exercise anyway.
