FJ-4B Fury Running off the Same Runway at Oshkosh AirVenture 2011 Hours after the F-16

The FJ-4B ran off of the runway at AirVenture 2011, the same runway that the Alabama Guard F-16 ran off of just hours before and crashed into the muddy ground. It went off of the north end of runway 36.
The FJ-4B went right by the F-16 crash, as the Air Force personnel working on the F-16 stood by and watched the FJ-4B roll to a stop near a taxiway beside them. Apparently, the cause of the mishap was because the pilot lost braking control along with insufficient aerodynamic braking on touchdown. Even though he landed with plenty of runway left, he just never was able to slow down.
