Beth Bartlett, test engineer for the flight termination system test, surveys the damage after the explosion of an F-16 Fighting Falcon Aug. 19 at the Eglin Air Force Base range. The explosion was a test of the FTS to be used in the QF-16. The purpose was to demonstrate that the FTS design will be sufficient to immediately terminate the flight of a QF-16, as well as to determine a range safety debris footprint.
