View Full Version : Breaking news: FA-18 crashes into apartment building
On the news now. Both pilots ejected but taken to the hospital. Aircraft crashed into an apartment complex.
I saw the smoke and all the emergency vehicles heading that way. Paul H headed over to see what was going on. Crazy.
Amazing just a few injuries on the ground and both pilots are ok. Looks like they lost power or something similar just after take off and they were headed out to the ocean. Didn't make it but no deaths reported so far.

I read somewhere that stated the pilots ditched the fuel before they ejected. Otherwise I'm sure their would have been more damage. :eek:
Looks like they're getting things under control. Prayers for all involved including LE, fire, and EMS.
I've heard that only one person has been taken to the hospital other than the pilot(s). I could only imagine the severity of the crash if they didn't dump the fuel.
