From the looks of this, fortunate that no one was injured and no fire. Sure seems like a pretty small hole for an F-16 going in and remarkably little damage to the building as well. From the looks of the hole, it must have nosed straight down.

Juan Browne on his blancolirio YouTube channel, talks about the crash, ejection seats, the redundant hydraulic system, and, the EPU, the emergency power unit, and it's 6.7 gallons of hydrazine.
