Crashed near Durbuy (impacted in a sand trap on the Five Nations Golf Course), Belgium while on a routine training mission from Spangdahlem. The two man crew, Capt. Tom Smith and SrA.Jason Fowler, ejected safely. Backseater was an inlisted on an incentive ride. The crashed caused the grounding of all F110-GE-129 powered block 50 aircraft on the fourth day after, January 17th. A three hour inspection of the fan blades on each aircraft were performed because of the engine having defaulted on that. Some aircraft were flyable the same day, while others over the next few days. This mishap was the third in a row in five months.
