Written off 16 June 2000 when crashed on the Barry M Goldwater range, fourteen miles south west of Sells, Arizona. The pilot was engaged in an air-to-air fighting training. It was later revealed that the student pilot without realizing, pulled the throttle into the cut-off location during the intensity of the exercise.

An engine air start was performed, but seemed unsuccessful due to the pilot applying the Critical Action Procedures (CAPs) incorrectly. Pilot, First Lieutenant Doyle Pompa ejected safely at 7:45 hours. All Luke based F-16's were grounded as a result. The mishap was not a fleet wide problem, so flying resumed on June 20th.
