F‑16C 89‑2006 (call sign BANZAI 1) of 4th FS, 388th FW, Hill AFB, was written off on 25 October 2002 when collided with F‑16 89‑2111 and crashed 25 mile SE of Wendover, Utah, on the Utah Test & Training Range.

The mishap was caused by the failure of both pilots to properly de-conflict their flight paths during a tactical turn. Other contributing factors included: loss of situational awareness, misinterpretation of closure and visual cues, task mis-prioritization and channelization, and expectancy.

Pilot Captain David Rosemann, ejected safely at 27,800 feet AGL from his aircraft and was rescued from where he landed, approximately 1.25 miles from the point where the F-16 impacted into the terrain.
