Fuel Starvation Caused F-16 Crash: An accident investigation board has concluded that failure of a throttle cable led to the March 12 crash of an F-16CJ near the Tonopah Test Range Airfield in Nevada. About 46 minutes into a training flight, the engine remained stuck in full power. Repeated attempts by the pilot to disengage the afterburner failed before the engine flamed out from fuel starvation.
