  • Italian AF lost 2 F-16's

    Yesterday (22 may) 2 F-16ADF's Collided in mid air while flying in a International exercise. Both pilots ejected and were rescued. The F-16's crashed in to Sardinia's sea.
    One of the F-16's lost MM7246[photoid=308908]
    The other was MM7263.

    Looking at the accident rate of AMI F-16s they could also have used F-104s for a couple of years instead

    So, that makes 4 F-16 write-offs within a few days after the TK-GR crash.
