I HATE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS: Dutch F-16 flies into its own bullets, scores self-inflicted hits. “It appears that the damaged aircraft actually caught up with the 20mm rounds it fired as it pulled out of its firing run. At least one of them struck the side of the F-16’s fuselage, and parts of a round were ingested by the aircraft’s engine. The F-16’s pilot managed to land the aircraft safely at Leeuwarden Air Base.”

This has happened before.
