Dutch Fighter Jet Shoots Itself

A Dutch F16 fighter jet shot itself with its cannon, forcing the plane into an emergency landing.  This happened after the pilot attempted to hit a practice target at an air base.  The plane suffered considerable damage and part of the munition was found in the engine.  The Department of Defense said that this was a serious incident and the Netherlands Defense Safety Inspection is investigating how the plane was able to fire upon itself.
