ROS and Hondo send links to the news that an F-18 crashed in Virginia Beach a few hours ago. It’s being reported that the pilots ejected and one went to the hospital while one other person on the ground has been hospitalized for smoke inhalation.
David Schleck of the Virginia Pilot tells MSNBC that several witnesses saw both parachutes descending in the air, with both parachutes being caught in buildings above ground. One of the pilots was reportedly still attached to his parachute, which was entangled with the burning apartment building. Schleck says a local neighborhood child was able to obtain a knife that was reportedly used to free the Navy pilot.
I guess the news is a lot better than it could have been so far.
