Crap. I'm pulling for the pilot.
Awaiting details.
Curious if this was a mechanical or electrical issue or...?

"Status unknown" that close to ARFF and EMS is never a good sign unfortunately.

Totally agree with you that it's not a good sign. They usually say right away when the pilot has a safe ejection. But hoping for the best for the pilot. Hoping he made it.

Local media is reporting the pilot was taken to the hospital, but that hasn't been confirmed by the Air Force.
