Navy fighter pilot ejects safely as plane crashes in Nevada

FALLON, Nev.–A U.S. Navy fighter pilot safely ejected before a plane crashed in northern Nevada during a training mission in a remote mountain area about 90 miles east of Reno.
Officials at the Naval Air Station in Fallon said Jan. 12 rescue crews safely recovered the pilot after the FA-18A Hornet went down about 8:30 a.m. They said in a statement that the pilot — who was not identified — was being evaluated for potential injuries at a local hospital.
The Navy said a safety investigation is planned to determine the cause of the crash about 25 miles east of NAS Fallon where high desert borders mountains on the U.S. Navy’s Fallon Range Training Complex.
The aircraft was assigned to the Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center based at the station. AP
