A USAF F-16 Falcon ran off the runway at Oshkosh yesterday, resulting in the nosewheel collapsing. The pilot was unhurt. Some time later, the FJ-4B Fury owned and flown by Dr Richard Sugden also overran the runway and came to a halt near the F-16 with no further damage. It seems that Sugden had reported on the radio that he had lost his brakes and would be overshooting. The cause to the F-16 accident is unknown.

A YouTube video by MrSerious0 shows the Fury reaching the end of the runway:

A video of the F-16 incident can be seen on YouTube, as well as some photographs here. A single picture of the Fury incident is available on sim-outhouse for the moment. More will be posted as it becomes available.

  1. why do people always stopping taking video in the middle of what is going on or stop looking
    in the viewfinder and following the “target” ? you never know what will happen and especially at air shows so ADVISE: continue to follow your target till it came to a (safe) complete stop OR at take off till the target reached the demodisplay altitude in the scene that you take on video..
