What happens in this video ?

This Korean F-16C crashed on February 26th, 2002. Fire broke out after takeoff from Sosan air base (South Korea). The pilot ejected safely, and the F16 came down in a rice patty. The crash was caused by material defects in the engine blades.

I was assigned to the 51st FW there at the time. It is OSAN, AB not "Sosan". Thanks

There is no Sosan Air Base in Korea, but there is an Osan Air Base there!
