MADISON (WKOW) -- The last time a military plane crashed in our area was March 30, 1994.

An F-16 crashed at Truax Field after the plane landed at high speed with a full load of fuel.

The pilot, First Lieutenant Mike Wahlin, survived, ejecting himself before impact.

The U.S. Air Force blamed pilot error for the crash.
