Bird Strike Brings Down F-16 At Luke AFB

Fri Jun 28, 2013 4:35 pm

Just saw this on Yahoo; an F-16 being flown by a student pilot and an instructor pilot reported a bird strike shortly after take off from Luke AFB; both pilots ejected at low altitude, and both landed without injuries; ( the A/C caused a large, smoking hole in the ground )

After first checking (and not seeing another post about this), now that this post is up, I see another earlier post. I'm sure the moderators will know the best way to handle it ?
