An Air Force F-16 Crash In Arizona Is The Latest Military Aviation Mishap

Another military aircraft has crashed, but thankfully the pilot is doing OK this time.

An F-16C from Luke Air Force Base, Arizona, ran off the runway during an emergency landing Tuesday morning at Lake Havasu City Municipal Airport in Arizona, the 56th Fighter Wing announced.

The pilot is in good condition and is being treated at Havasu Regional Medical Center, a wing news release says. The mishap occurred during a training flight.

Military aviation has seen a spike in crashes recently. A total of 16 service members have been killed in separate crashes since March. Military Times found that crashes have soared by 40 percent since deep cuts to defense spending took effect in 2013.

During the past year, more service members have been killed in military aircraft crashes than in combat.
