Sheppard AFB T-38 Crashes, Crew Safe

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.

An investigation board will convene to determine the cause of the accident.
