F-16vs. Cessna 150

I saw an the tee vee that an F-16 fighter and a little bitty Cessna collided and apparently the crash totaled out both aircraft. They were pretty short on details but it appears that both pilots were killed. The wreckage was spread across about a mile of swampy woodland. Holy crap what a sight. Just how the hell does a Cessna even come in to close proximity to a fighter jet in the first place?

Damn. I'd think the odds of that happening are pretty small.

The reports I've seen so far said the F-16 pilot ejected and was alive and the 2 in the Cessna died. I wonder if the F-16 pilot died later of wounds.
