Woops that won't buff out AND someone in the deepest of deep do-do. What happened to pre ground power checks?
 
Same happened in SA years ago. Misfire on the guns on a Mirage. Mechanic sat there fiddling with the trigger and put a couple of rounds up the tailpipe of the one parked in front of him.

What do the Belgians have that mounts an M16 Vulcan?

I assume that this is rowlocks, and the gun was a different model cannon on another F16?
 
Pretty sure ths happened 2 years ago - unless the Belgians have had the emperor round for dinner and managed a repeat performance

Given all the safeguards you'd have to override to fire the cannon with weight on the gear, I can't really figure out how it could be accidental.
