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.

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.
