US Army jet crash

What Happened?

An F-16 fighter jet crashed into a warehouse near a base outside Los Angeles, leaving the pilot and workers on the ground with minor injuries. 

The crash happened at about 15:45 local time (23:45 GMT) outside the March Air Reserve Base in Perris. 

The pilot ejected before impact, and the small fire that broke out was quickly suppressed due to the building's advanced and reactive sprinkler system.

There is currently a drought of information surrounding the crash but what we do know is that effectively everyone on the ground is alive and safe.

Only a few received minimal damage but are set to make a full recovery.

A Facebook post read as follows: "Omg fighter jet just crashed into my work...  live ordinance holy..... I think we all made it out..."

It also contained shocking images from the scene.


What Were The Consequences?

According to the air force reserves, the jet was flying a training mission for the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

Roads towards the crash were blocked off as a safety precaution as teams have been searching amongst the rubble to ensure no military weapons were at the scene, and if that was the case, they are quickly evacuated from the scene.

We hope that from now on, the number of training accidents in the US Air Force will be heavily reduced to keep in mind the safety of innocent people who are usually involved in such situations.
