Navy jet crash is never good news, but this term started to trend this evening following two U.S. Navy pilots getting hurt during a training flight in Florida. A jet suddenly crashed while trying to land on a Pensacola runway this Monday morning, CNN reports this Nov. 4.
The Navy jet crash initially left the conditions of the victims unknown, but more recent reports fortunately confirm that both pilots are now stable. Said one spokeswoman for the Navy training school:
"The two crew members are being treated at local hospitals right now," Navy spokewoman Lt. Lauryn Dempsey affirmed in a recent statement. "Both are stable."
The jet that crashed was a two-seater T-45 C Goshawk, scheduled on Training Squadrom 86. It was in the process of a training flight when the jet crashed just off the Naval Air Station in Pensacola runway at 10:30 a.m.
The names of the two Navy pilots have not yet been released, though both pilots are again confirmed to be in stable condition and in a local hospital.
The exact cause of the crash has not yet been discovered, though an investigation has been made. Every single year, a few hundred Navy flight students earn their official “wings” at Pensacola’s Air Station, and such crashes are not a common occurrence.
