Hard Landing for Jet at the EAA

7/29/11 – One of the two F-16 jets performing at the EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh suffered a hard landing late yesterday morning. A witness to the incident tells us it looked like the jet was coming in too fast and its brakes failed. The jet simply ran out of runway. The pilot was able to safely escape and jogged away from the scene. Since it was an Air Force jet an investigation into the incident will be handled by the Department of Defense. (KFIZ, Fond du Lac)
