A USAF F-16, currently
identified as an F-16CG, has gone down over Iraq, as confirmed by
onsite military officials.
The aircraft went down some 20 miles NW of Baghdad, in Anbar
Province. Local news reports say the pilot died after ejecting from
the stricken plane.
The aircraft went down Monday, at approximately 1335 local time,
and appeared to pitch up and down repeatedly prior to impact,
according to an Iraqi witness, Mohammed Al-Obeidi, who lives nearby
The aircraft impacted in a farm and sketchy reports indicate
that the aircraft was carrying only one airman.
The aircraft was involved in support of coalition ground forces
at the time of the accident. The accident site was immediately
overflown and has had a number of warplanes circling while recovery
operations are undertaken.
