First Photos of WI F-16 Crash

An F-16 pilot escaped serious injury Tuesday when he ejected shortly before his plane crashed into a vacant house in Adams County. Fire and smoke forced the evacuation of 50 people from homes near the point of impact of the fighter jet from the Madison-based 115th Fighter Wing of the Wisconsin Air National Guard, but it could have been much worse. The jet came within a few feet of the roof of Norma Pourchot's house in the town of New Chester before slamming into an unoccupied vacation home across the street at about 1:20 p.m.
