DAYTON, OH (FOX19 NOW/AP) -

A technical sergeant has been released from a hospital after an Air Force Thunderbirds F-16 left the runway and flipped over after landing during preparation for an air show in Dayton.

Technical Sgt. Kenneth Cordova was released Friday night, according to the Associated Press.

The jet's pilot, Capt. Erik Gonsalves, has not been released from the hospital. Authorities said both were in good condition after the accident Friday afternoon at Dayton International Airport.

The Thunderbirds will not fly at the Vectren Dayton Air Show, according to the Thunderbirds' Twitter page.

The commander in charge of the Thunderbirds has said a safety board will determine the cause of the "mishap" that occurred at the end of an advance flight before this weekend's scheduled shows.
