OSAN AIR BASE, South Korea An F-16 ended up off the runway surface while attempting to land at Osan Air Base on Tuesday.
The pilot was recovered safely from the scene, while the aircraft remained off the side of the runway, said a statement from the 51st Fighter Wing.
An investigation into the incident is under way. Osan was being buffeted by high winds at the time.
My favorite air combat plane. Best there is. Who was the pilot? “Mi-Brake-Fail|”?
This incident doesn’t seem newsworthy. Surely this isn’t the only time something like this has happened; winds were strong at the time. Why would this be reported publically?
‘Who was the pilot?’

It’s either this or more drivel about the Zimmerman verdict.
Good one too!
Another career irretrievably off the rails. See ya!
Good grief, does no one in the "journalism" world know how to write a freakin' headline anymore?
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
I was really shocked to see a “Top 10” Mil show for warplanes and NOT see the F-16 on it. Disappointed, let’s say. What a great all-around plane.
Meanwhile, I WAS pleased the P-51 was #1.
I heard it was Mi Dum Phuk. I will bet this is only one of many, many comments on the name that you receive.:)
