F-16's Collide off Folly Beach
CHARLESTON, SC (Friday, 10/16/09) --

The Coast Guard is searching the Alantic Ocean for an F-16 fighter pilot from Shaw Air Force Base. Captain Nicholas Giglio went missing when his F-16, similar to the one pictured here, collided with another fighter jet.

The collision occurred about 40 miles off the Folly Beach coast early last night during a training mission. The second jet involved in the collision made it to nearby Charleston Air Force Base and landed safely.

Joining the Coast Guard in the search effort are assets from the US Navy and the Charleston Air Base.
