The pilot of the F-16
Fighting Falcon, assigned to Shaw AFB, that crashed April 5 at
around 5:40 p.m. was found by the U.S. Coast Guard about two hours
later in the Atlantic Ocean, and taken to a nearby U.S. Navy ship
Capt. Ted Shultz, assigned to the 55th Fighter Squadron here,
was then transported via Coast Guard helicopter to a hospital in
Charleston, S.C., for further treatment, Coast Guard officials
said. No details have been provided on his current condition.
The aircraft crashed about 35 miles off the coast of South
Carolina. At the time of the accident, Captain Shultz was
participating in a training mission.
A board of officers will investigate the accident.
