F-16 Fighter Crash At EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011

The F-16C belonging to the 100th Fighter Squadron of the Alabama Air National Guard was landing at Runway 36 at Wittman regional Airport when it overrun the runway and came to a stop in the grass cracking the fighter's nose; the nose gear appears to have collapse.

This is the only serious incident recorded at 2011 edition of the AirVenture. The pilot was taken to a nearby hospital for precautionary measures. The cause of the incident is not known, EAA says it could either be a mechanical failure or pilot error.
