Although completely legal, this is what happens when you fly through an active MOA. Probably not the smartest idea...even under IFR control.

If you are ifr they will not fly you into an active MOA. In MISS and ALA they will use you as a target and practice finding you. You must be careful in the MOAS. These guys were complaining cause they were in a bad spot. Think about this. Why did the pilot climb. His Premier can not out climb a f 16. Why not make a turn away from the climbing aircraft? I hope they dinged him for flying a jet vfr.

To paulthegreat:
TCAS only commands climbs or descents.
Turn info. is not given. Why would a pilot get dinged for flying a jet VFR?

He didn't know it was an F16 when the TCAS warned him.

Hey guys.... MOA or "shMOA"....according to the FAR it's "see and A-V-O-I-D" not "see-and-go-get-em". And I didn't hear either pilot agree to formation flying .... 10 feet apart!!! Where was the common sense not to mention courtesy and avoidance manuever on the part of the F-16 pilot? He's the one that needs to get dinged and dinged good!!!
