A Navy jet crash that occurred on Saturday at approximately noontime remains a mystery to Navy officials. The Navy jet crash occurred some 60 miles east of Reno, Nevada, near a United States Navy range, according to a Fox News report on Sunday.

Officials are still withholding the name of the pilot until next of kin are notified. The Navy also said that the aircraft is most likely a total loss.

The crash occurred in a remote, mountainous area which made it difficult for Navy personnel to locate the crash site. It took several hours for them to find the aircraft. Additionally, the area was covered with snow that fell overnight which made it even more difficult to reach the crash site.

The aircraft was a Marine Corps F/A-18C that was on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center for training use. The aircraft had no weapons or other munitions onboard. There are no other injuries or property damage known at this time.
