Default F-16 Crash @March AFB SoCal

https://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zon...ern-california


The situation is very fluid and details remain scarce at best, but multiple reports state that an F-16 has crashed near March Air Reserve Base located just outside of Riverside, California. The aircraft supposedly careened into a warehouse resulting in a substantial fire. Firefighters have requested a full hazmat response. Some are saying this indicates the aircraft was carrying live munitions, which could very well be true, but F-16s also use the volatile fuel hydrazine for power generation and the planes themselves contain materials that could be harmful to personnel when set alight. Some reports have also stated that the pilot ejected and landed safely, although they are yet to be officially confirmed.

Looks like the pílot ejected, hopefully, he's alright.

Also, what about the hydrazine?

Yeah there was a parachute. KCRA Heli was streaming around the whole area:





... but ummm, no fire, smoke? No fuel?

Apparently, the building got its fire suppression system triggered by the collision.

Sure looks like a no-fuel crash . I see very little/no trace of fire .
