A T-38A Talon aircraft assigned to the 80th Flying Training
Wing, crashed on takeoff Oct. 14. Both crewmembers successfully
ejected from the aircraft. They were sent to the base hospital for
observation but were later released.
Emergency workers from the base responded to the incident.
The Air Force notes that the T-38A Talon is a twin-engine,
high-altitude, supersonic jet trainer used in a variety of roles
because of its "design, economy of operations, ease of maintenance,
high performance and exceptional safety record." Air Education and
Training Command is the primary user of the T-38A for joint
specialized undergraduate pilot training. Air Combat Command, Air
Force Materiel Command and the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration also use the T-38A in various roles.
