The pilot, Sam Carter was landing at Jacksonville IAP, Florida when two pigs ran across the runway in front of him. The pigs severed the left main landing gear and the pilot ejected, causing $487,000 in damage. 900 parts were replaced including all landing gear, speed brakes, horizontal stabilizers, the nose, canopy and most of the cockpit instrumentation. The jet flew again for the first time on 14 May 1989 with Carter again at the controls. Shortly after the aircraft was fixed it was sent for ADF conversion.
