Its always rather unnerving when the big jets roar overhead, but I never fear for them crashing.....Thank heavens when this f16 went down it was on a training run over an unpopulated area.
The poor pilot, I feel so bad for his family, as you DO NOT expect your military family members to be dying on US soil.

The last F-16 crash in Utah was in March of 2006. The pilot was also on a training mission and was able to eject safely.

Then back in 2002, there were two deadly crashes.

So, these incidents do happen, but compared to the thousands of fly missions over the Test and Training range each year, they're still rare.

This happened last night but they are just now releasing the news......
