According to the inside sources, the pilot of the aircraft lost its braking action during the landing when it was taxiing. The pilot only had one option to save the aircraft with minimal damage and it was to veer the aircraft into a ditch nearby. The pilot veered it safely into the ditch and stopped its taxi.

The whole incident is still under investigation and as of this moment, there are still no reports about the extent of damage sustained by aircraft.

According to further inside news, the aircraft was making a return from a training mission but based on the news and images after this crash, the aircraft seems to carry at least one live GBU-38 JDAM (Joint Direct Attack Munition).
