Or what about the crash in the NTTR the day before the Hogs crashed?  Pilot killed but very little known.  Any info out there on that?  Rough week.

Just came across this article. Rough week for sure. :beer:

Was told a Draken A-4 punched today in the pattern in Nellis? Pilot ok.

I'm pretty sure this did not happen. I've been out here TDY for a little over a week and haven't heard anything like that. I think one did blow a tire or have some malfunction after landing the other day but that's all I've heard.

That exact scenario DID happen a few months ago.  It was one of their family-model A-4s.

That was likely it then. Glad there wasn't another to add to the list.

In Naval Aviation, we always say these things tend to happen in "threes."

Mid-air? Both pilots are ok from what I've heard.
