    Fueltank of USAF F-16C block 40 #88-0421 that crashed into F-16C block 40 #88-0516 at Al Udeid AB, Qatar on June 15th, 2003 sticking through an electrical generator. Both aircraft suffered severe damage and it was a miracle hat nobody was hurt, considering the fact that the F-16 who was hit was the first of 7 in a row and that the F-16 who hit the second F-16 was carrying live ammo. One of the attached sidewinders even caught fire. [USAF photo]
