A U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds F-16 practicing for an airshow has been involved in an accident and crashed at Dayton International Airport in Ohio. The aircraft involved was one of the team’s Block 52 F-16Ds which are normally used for media flights, camera ships, and as spare/stand-ins for the team’s six-ship demonstration.

The initial reports say that a gust of wind may have affected the aircraft in some way, resulting in it being turned over off the airport’s movement areas. The weather could have been a factor as local CBS affiliate WHIO reported that there was “heavy rain in the area at that time. Rainfall rates were said to be in the vicinity exceeding two inches per hour.” There were also strong winds at the time of the crash.

A pilot and someone else were onboard the aircraft at the time of the crash. There are no reported fatalities for now. The conditions of the pilot and his passenger remain unclear, though.

Based from the footage of the WHIO’s livestream, the jet could be seen totally in an upside-down position and laying on its spine.

Due to the crash, CBS reported that there has been an effect on flights causing delays in the airport.

Just two days ago, another F-16 crashed during takeoff from Ellington Field in Texas.

Ungrateful fuck. When you decide to pay for the website you can control how it operates. Until then shut the fuck up.
