Two Die After Military Jet Crashed Near An Airport In Alabama

A military jet crashed near an Alabama airport on Friday evening leaving both of its pilots dead. The jet crash-landed in a wooded area near the Montgomery Regional Airport according to Marshall Taggart, the executive director of the airport.

However, the crash did not affect or change the arrival and departure schedule at the airport.

In a statement, the Airforce said the T-38 trainer aircraft had been assigned to the 14th Flying Training Wing. This is based out of Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi.

The airport got notified about the military jet crash shortly after 5 p.m. local time. However, the officials at the airport did not know what caused the fatal accident.

‘’Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the two pilots involved in this incident. There are no words that can describe the sadness that accompanies the loss of our teammates,’’ said Col. Seth Graham, the 14th Flying Training Wing commander.

The names of the deceased pilots were withheld at the time pending next of kin notifications. The Air Force also said a safety investigation board would look into the crash.

Authorities will hold a press conference on Saturday at 1 p.m. EST on Columbus Air Force Base.
