Shaw AFB F-16 Downed, Pilot Safe

Pilot Located After Crash

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 for stabilization.

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.
