Mid-Air in Alaska:

Two fighters participating in the current Red Flag Alaska collided in mid-air, sending one crashing into a rural area and the other limping back to Eielson AFB, Alaska, the host site for the Red Flag exercise. An F-15C from Langley AFB, Va., crashed after its pilot ejected safely, while the other fighter, an F-16C from the 64th Aggressor Squadron at Nellis AFB, Nev., suffered some damage but made it back to Eielson.
