F-16 Suffers Landing Gear Collapse

The jet landed with two its three wheels, sustaining some damage. The plane was in a training mission when the accident occurred around 1 pm on Friday, March 30. The two pilots were unhurt. Judging from the plane's markings and its home base, it was a F-16B MLU. The plane was part of a batch acquired second hand from the Netherlands in 2005.

All those Chileans that where having a party when the knew the purchase of 44 F16 should be under panic attack, because the second hand F16 with an average of 3500 hours of fligth , are like a woman or man in their 50thies which require many many sesion of facial lifth. Big business for the Duch/ Israeli and Americans who sold those aging airccafts as over-price bargain, and the Chilean Idits took it.

Fortunately, this Chilean F-16 didn't explode in the air
(like the US Navy's F/A-18D Hornet in Virginia Beach,)
otherwise the above "expert" would have trumpeted that it had been purchased in a junkyard!
