E3D Sentry Accident?

I saw a picture on the wall at RAF Halton of a E3D Awac sentry crashed.

It was on a sea wall, with the front boken off and bent a little, just in front of the wings. All the engines seemed to be on still with wheels up i think. Also, the rear door was open and the slide inflated and landing on the sea wall.

Could not see the owner's markings (RAF, USAF)

Is this a real accident, or a fake pic

Just out of interest, why would you think that the RAF would hang a fake picture on the wall?

It's a real pic of a NATO E-3. The aircraft was a NATO E-3A that which crashed in Akiton Greece on July 14, 1996 after rejecting takeoff after multiple bird strikes. http://home.worldonline.nl/snake/natoe3a.htm has more info on the crash as well as more pics.As for the USAF, it has only lost a single Sentry, Serial # 77-00354, which was lost on September 22, 1995 due to multiple bird strikes.
