An F/A-18 jet crashed Friday into a cluster of apartment buildings in Virginia Beach, eyewitnesses told MSNBC cable television. Two pilots believed to have ejected before impact according to reports from the region.
In an interview with CBS News, Tim Riley of the Virginia Beach Fire Department said:
“We are confirming that there is one aircraft from Oceana that has crashed into the apartment behind us. Both pilots were transported to a local hospital and both were conscious, that’s all I’m going to report on that. In the apartment complex we do not have any confirmation yet of injuries. We are still in the stages of extinguishing the fire and we have to do some extensive searches in those buildings.”
