Collided over Fyn Island, Denmark, with F-16B (78-0211, ET-211) during a NATO exercise 'Blue Moon' near Assens. The aircraft was flown by Lieutenant Egon Christensen and the back-seat rider was aircraft technician SA Flemming Mortensen. Both crewmembers ejected but hit the canopy and didn't survive. The aircraft were flying in close formation in low altitude with ET-209 in front. During a turn the pilot in ET-211 misunderstood the instructions from the formation leader and collided with ET-209 during the turn.
