Doubtful for a training sortie unless the pilot was visiting a live range!

Also, that hole in the building would be a whole lot bigger haha

Fingers crossed noone got hurt!

F16s carry live ammo permanently?

I’m working with them right now in Arizona and they’re not carrying live…

Not really. Again, I think we talk about crashes for so long that people get the impression that they occur much more frequently than they do…
