Trier / Zemmer

A US fighter crashed on Tuesday afternoon in Rhineland-Palatinate. "I can confirm the crash of one of our F16 machines," said a spokeswoman for the US airfield Spangdahlem in the Eifel. The machine had started from the base and crashed during a routine training flight. The pilot had rescued the ejection seat and was recovered with minor injuries, it said in a statement. He came to a hospital.

The police in Trier said that the crash site near Zemmer in the district of Trier-Saarburg had been cordoned off. There are no indications for damages. According to the local mayor of Zemmer, Edgar Schmitt, the jet went down over a forest. The accident is being investigated.

Residents were asked to avoid the crash site. Vehicles should bypass the area over a large area. Several county roads were closed to traffic.

The Mountain Home boys can't let Seymour be the only utterly screwed up Mud Hen base. They're gonna have to work hard to catch up though.

Antiskid and hydro issues usually sees them all go as soon as they touch the runway. Had a B-1 lose all 8 mains after the pilot panicked with half the runway left and an antiskid issue.
