A United States Navy pilot was killed in a crash involving a U.S. Marine Corps F/A-18C around noon ET Saturday, March 2, at Naval Air Station Fallon in Nevada, about 60 miles east or Reno.

The F/A-18C was on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center for use as a training craft according to Navy personnel. According to reports by various news agencies informed of the crash through a press release directly from the Navy, the aircraft was not carrying any weapons or other munitions and no other injuries or property were damaged.

It took personnel several hours to reach the crash because of its remote location. The mountainous terrain and overnight snowstorm made reaching the pilot and craft a more difficult endeavor.

Until the family has been notified, the pilot of the F/A-18C has been withheld out of respect.
