A Navy jet crash took place earlier this week, leading investigative crews to examine the cause of the crash that injured two crew members during a routine flight landing in Pensacola, Florida. The phrase made headlines yesterday afternoon after reports of a jet crashing near the runway while attempting to safely land on Monday morning, UPI confirms this Tuesday, Nov. 5.
The sudden Navy jet crash has not yet had a cause of the accident determined. Both crew members, who were said to be pilots in training, are in stable condition. Each was a member of the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, a well-known U.S. Navy training site.
"The two crew members are being treated at local hospitals right now," Navy spokewoman Lt. Lauryn Dempsey said in a Monday statement following the frightening incident. "Both are stable."
A two-seater T-45 C. Goshawk was the jet model that crashed during the flight landing. The Navy jet crash is believed to have occurred sometime just after 10:30 a.m. Monday morning. An examination whether it was pilot or crew member inexperience, or a mechanical issue on the jet itself, is being looked into as possible causes of the runway crash, concluded the press release from CNN.
The pair of Navy pilots is remaining nameless at this time, and are said this Tuesday morning to remain in a safe condition in a local Florida hospital. Annually, hundreds of flight students in the U.S. forces make their wings at the Pensacola Naval Air Station.
