Apparently the flight was going to go through, or to either Eilson or Elmendorf. The reports are saying now they were heading to Alaska. No word on whether they were going for an exercise, or if they were swapping aircraft out, or how many others were in the cell with the mishap aircraft. I'm still looking for info on a tail number. I have the unit, but no tail number has been given out yet that I've found.

What's really fun is reading all the articles, trying to piece details together. I've so far found one article that had a picture of an actual F-16, only it was an Israeli F-16I. And another article had a great picture, too bad it was a Typhoon...

Hell, this one has an F-22 dropping flares.

The pilot is OK and awaiting rescue.

Floating in the NE pacific irradiating it up



Is the F-16 past its used by date?

I wonder if the pilot had died....would there be a pro-drone movement from Americans?

I personally think that drones will ultimately replace all pilots from combat missions.

Let me guess you design drone avionic communication systems.


BTW that is the expert consensus that drones will soon replace manual air piloted craft.

Was it the 13th or the 14th? About this time in 2008 we went to Eielson for Green Flag, still flew through Hawaii. Did the tail number ever come out? I hope it wasn't 462

Let me check, and I'll try to find out. I know where to get the tail number for you and I'll let you know.

My usual sources are letting me down. All I've been able to find out so far is it was apparently a 35th FS aircraft.

was the F-16 jet armed when it crashed?

No. They only fly armed when they're on alert or a live fire exercise. The fighters in Japan don't stand alert, as the Japanese have a perfectly capable fighter fleet, and live fire exercises are usually held in the US, not Japan.

The AIB report found that the main fuel control valve was partially closed for three and a half minutes, and fully closed for three minutes, cutting off fuel to the engine.
