No obvious signs of distress?

None that I could see or hear.

It came over so quick I never got a good glimpse of it.

Best I could say was it looked like a plane coming into landing but fast. Weather it was the same plane and the pilot attempting a crash landing? There are lots of empty fields in the area. Though with the hedgerows and trees not ideal and if he was coming down as fast as I think he was....

He could have been trying to get to Mildenhall if that was him.

It was in that direction. I was driving toward Ely from the north south bound

I wonder if he had compressor problems during takeoff and headed for Mildenhall trying to land.

Going by the comments of a witness he may have steered it clear of people before crashing.

Yeah the area he landed was just empty fields. If he had gone a bit more to the west he would have landed in Ely which is a medium size town and would have killed many. Brave pilot if that what he did as he would of saved lives.

Zaphod do you know if the pilot squawked 7700 or not?

No he didn't. I would have gotten the alert if he had. I got two commercial flights and a Typhoon this morning, but nothing from this.

Any word on what unit they were from? Someone from my OCS class is a Hornet driver with VMFA 312...

Another thing is it is pretty miserable and cloudy weather here.

VMFA-232 out of Miramar. It was a C model.

The pilot reportedly ejected, but didn't survive the ejection. The first warning something was wrong was when he failed to rendezvous for the first in flight refueling point.

It was a flight of six, which makes more sense. They came out of Bahrain bound for Miramar. The other five aircraft diverted to RAF Lossiemouth. They'll remain there until at least tomorrow, possibly as long as 48 hours.

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.


how in the hell do you know this kind of stuff!!


I've learned not to question Zaphod. It never ends well.
I just watch, and learn...

Do the F18 have a newer "zero-zero" ejection seat? Maybe the aircraft wasn't wings level or was in a dive during ejection? That is very unfortunate
