We have another incident involving two Air National Guard F-16s colliding in the skies over Georgia. This comes just just two weeks after two Navy F/A-18 Super Hornets collided off the North Carolina coast during a routine training mission.

In both accidents, the pilots ejected safely, the fighter jets were lost, and a formal investigation is underway, according to the Washington Examiner.

In Tuesday’s mid-air collision, the single-seat F-16s were flying at night over a military operating area in Jefferson County, Ga., when they apparently came in contact with each other.

There were no injuries on the ground as the planes went down about 9:15 p.m. in two separate sites in wooded areas.

The F-16s were assigned to the Air National Guard’s 169th Fighter Wing in South Carolina.

The accident also comes after both the Air Force and Navy precision flying teams suffered high-profile accidents.

Last week, an Air Force Thunderbirds pilot ejected safely after completing a flyover at the U.S. Air Force Academy’s graduation ceremony, while a Navy Blue Angels pilot was killed when his F-18 crashed shortly after takeoff.

You have to ask yourself, why are there so many accidents lately? It’s no secret that Obama gas drastically cut the Military budgets, not to mention many of these jets are pretty old and the equipment isn’t being maintained as well as it should be.

Regardless, we are glad that no one was killed or injured.
