US Air Force F-16 crashes during training flight in Nevada

A US Air Force Thunderbirds pilot has been killed as his F-16 jet crashed at Nellis Air Force Base outside of Las Vegas, on Wednesday. Its pilot ejected and has been reported in stable condition. Stephen Del Bagno, Thunderbird 4/Slot Pilot, preforms preflight checks in his F-16 Fighting Falcon at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., Jan. 26, 2018. The pilot was not immediately identified, pending next-of-kin notification.

The Thunderbirds have canceled their upcoming weekend appearance at March Reserve Base in California.

This is the 2nd incident involving a Thunderbird plane in a year. The pilot and his passenger were hospitalized with injuries after the incident.

On June 23, 2017, Thunderbird #08 ran off a wet runway and overturned at Dayton International Airport in OH while rehearsing for an air show.

The pilot, a member of the Air Force Thunderbirds, was killed in the crash.

It is the second plane crash at Nellis Air Force Base in a matter of months following a non-fatal crash in January.

Air Force Lt. Col. Kevin Walsh, who was already a member of the Thunderbirds team, was later named the team's commander.
