I was running target shop when the plane blew up. What I believe happened was an f-111was taking off with 24 500 pound bombs. The plane was in rotation when the right main landing gear collapsed. The plane skidded off runway and stopped in grass. An mp patrol came by and rescued the crew just before the plane blew up. The first explosion was the fuel. Then some oh bombs also exploded. I was in the hq bldg and the explosion rocked the bldg.. All that was left of plane were the two engines.
