General Note

  • Accompanying note: "Pilot in F-5 died in the collision. Crash scene located just off runway 7. Crash occurred due to miscommunication between pilots while performing a 'Break' over the airfield. A 'Break' is a maneuver where an aircraft breaks or banks the aircraft in preparation for making a landing. This accident was the result of the FA-18 breaking into the F-5 while performing the maneuver. Prior to the break the lead pilot in the F-5 aircraft called for a lead changed but failed to execute the change. The result was the FA-18 pilot banked into the F-5 that wasn't supposed to be there."
