The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) Tuesday released a factual report on the July 7, 2015, fatal midair collision of a Cessna 150M and a U.S. Air Force Lockheed Martin F-16CM. NTSB also opened a public docket for its ongoing investigation of the crash.
The two aircraft collided in visual meteorological conditions near Moncks Corner, South Carolina, at 1101 local time. The Cessna was destroyed, and the pilot of the aircraft and a passenger were killed. The damaged F-16 continued to fly for three minutes before its pilot ejected. The pilot landed safely, and the aircraft was destroyed when it crashed.

NTSB said analytical findings, probable cause and suggested safety improvements for this midair collision, along with those for an Aug. 16, 2015, midair collision involving a Cessna 172M and a North American Rockwell Sabreliner near San Diego, are slated to be presented for approval during a public meeting of the board on Nov. 15.
The Cessna 172M and the experimental NA265-60SC Sabreliner collided in midair about one mi (2 km) northeast of Brown Field Municipal Airport in San Diego. The pilot of the Cessna and the two pilots and two mission specialists aboard the Sabreliner died and both aircraft were destroyed. More information on the accident is available here
