16G ? how ?..... the only way I can think of pulling 16 g in the f-16 if it breaks up in mid air.85721 was a crash that happened during CCS. The pilot had pulled 16G instantaneously and had G-LOCed. Unfortunately he was in a dive as last seen in a HUD tape of another Viper, which caught the impact to the ground.
Shouldn't FCS limit that unless of course it has been overridden manually by the pilot.
