The F-16 was taking part in a mock attack to the uninhabited island of Tarva, off of Norway’s west coast, when it opened fire with its M61 Vulcan cannon, capable of schooling up to 100 rounds/second.

A hail of bullets hit the tower in the incident, happened on the night of April 12. Nobody was injured and an investigation has been opened.
