Today's AVPress reports that an F16 out of Edwards AFB went down yesterday morning very near the southwest border of the Park. Killed were the pilot and a renown arial photographer who were flying a chase mission relating to testing of a missile decoy system.

The very small and rough map that accompanied the AVPress story showed the crash occuring maybe around Brown Mtn or Straw Peak, or perhaps in Searles Valley.
Hopefully I'll have more details later as to the exact location.
