A T-38 pilot was able to eject before the aircraft crashed Friday west of Vance AFB, Okla. The instructor pilot, who was flying solo at the time of the mishap, was not seriously injured. The Talon crashed about 70 miles east of the base at about 1:48 p.m., according to a Vance release. The aircraft is a total loss. It was the third crash involving a T-38 within the past year. In November, a T-38 at Laughlin AFB, Texas, crashed near Del Rio, Texas, killing one pilot. In May, a Talon from Columbus AFB, Miss, crashed, with both pilots able to eject. —Brian Everstine
