F-16 and F-15 Mid-air collision during the Red Flag-Alaska

The accident occurred during the Red Flag-Alaska exercise during June 2007,  neither pilot was injured in the incident.

The report released by the Air Combat Commands, Accident Investigation Board on November 30th stated Major Jason Costello from 71st Fighter Squadron based a Langley Air Force Base, was so focused on pursuing his targets that he did not realize he had crossed into the airspace occupied by the F-16 flown by Major Brett Paola of the 64th Aggressor Squadron, based out of Nellis Air Force Base.

Costello did not see the F-16. Maj. Paola did not see the F-15 till it was some 3,000 feet away.

This gave him just enough time to bank right. Costello hit the F-16 at approximately 600 mph, while Paola was doing approximately 445 mph.

The impact caused the F-15 to become uncontrollable, resulting in Costello ejecting at 26,000 feet and landing in the woods in Pacific Alaska Range Complex.

Local National Guard rescued the down airman. Paola, on the other hand, returned to Eielson Air Force base with damage to his left-wing, stabilizer, and tail fin.
