Police, fire and air ambulance were called to the scene just after 10:30.

No reports yet of any casualties.

R.I.P to anyone killed in the accident. Hopefully there are not that many fatality's or injured.

It was a Navy F-18 that had just taken off.

Interestingly a couple hours ago a Typhoon sent out a 7700 code for an in flight emergency.

Any idea if the crew had time/altitude to eject?

The only thing I've found confirmed is type. Lakenheath confirmed that it was just after takeoff but that's it.

The F-18 crashed after complications when it was going to conduct air refueling.

The pilot has ejected.

I get 7600 and 7700 alerts. It's already been a busy day for 7700s today.

It was almost immediately after takeoff. The crash site is reported to be about 4 miles from the base. He would have barely had time to get the gear up before whatever happened went wrong.

Eta: looks like he actually came down near Mildenhall after taking off from Lakenheath.

I see that it popped up on my flight radar app but I was asleep so I missed it. Any ideas what that was ? Now I've set up alerts for 7700s my phone gets quite busy sometimes

Based on the information receiving and comms. Very high possibility that the pilot ejected and has been heard talking to Lakenheath (@planesonthenet)


He didnt make it.

Cambridgeshire police told the BBC that one person - believed to be the pilot - was killed in the crash.

There were no other casualties.

Wow I wish they would get their facts right before reporting if anyone has died or not .. What a fiasco

Yeah, they're usually better than this about waiting on facts.

Not yet. Sometimes they just slide by without any info.

It was a flight of four that stopped at Lakenheath for crew rest. They were on a ferry flight from the ME back to the US.

May have seen it.

I was driving through the area and saw what looked like a Legacy aircraft flying low. Lower than I normally see them fly.

Due to driving I didn't see what happened to it
