F-16 Pilot Ejects Safely as Fighter Jet Crashes in Southern Wisconsin
The pilot was conducting a routine training flight with an F-16 Fighter Falcon jet aircraft from the Wisconsin Air National Guard 115th Fighter Wing over Adams County, Wisconsin, when the accident occurred at around 1:20 p.m. local time.
The unnamed pilot was able to eject safely and was recovered south of Chester, Wisconsin, around 70 miles northwest of Milwaukee. The pilot was being medically evaluated, the U.S. Air Force said.
The aircraft was also found in Chester, as emergency teams were deployed to recover the aircraft. An Air Force team will be investigating the incident to determine the cause of the accident.
