Brunei AF Bell 212, USAF F-16 crash in seperate incidents

A bad weekend in our neighbourhood for military aviation with a Royal Brunei Air Force Bell 212 helicopter crashing while carrying 11 military cadets and three crew home after training in the jungle, tragically killing 12 on board.

Meanwhile on Sunday morning, a USAF F-16C crashed into the sea 200 miles (320km) off northern Japan whilst on a ferry flight from Misawa Air Base in Japan to the mainland United States. The pilot, from the USAF's 35th Fighter Wing based at Misawa, ejected from the stricken aircaft and was rescued by civilian vessels.
