Narrative:
An F-16CM, of 52nd FW, crashed into a wooded area near Zemmer, north of Trier.
The pilot ejected, but was injured and taken to hospital.

The serial of the aircraft is unclear. 90-0813, 90-0831 and 90-0833 have been suggested. AN F-16 with callsign "Warhawk 11" issued an emergency (squawk 7700) but it has been suggested that it could have been the wing man of the aircraft in trouble.
