Breaking News: F-35 Jet Crash Near Albuquerque Airport

1 Min Read
A F-35 Lightning II jet has crashed near the Albuquerque International Sunport in New Mexico. The incident underscores the serious setback to the US jet industry reputation.
The crash occurred shortly after the jet, which had departed from Fort Worth, Texas, made a refueling stop at Kirtland Air Force Base. The pilot, who was the sole occupant of the aircraft, managed to eject safely before the crash and has been reported to be conscious and breathing.
The F-35 was en route to Edwards Air Force Base near Los Angeles when the unfortunate accident took place. Witnesses reported seeing the aircraft trailing low to the ground before it went down, resulting in a large plume of smoke visible from the airport. Emergency teams were dispatched to the crash site, where they worked to extinguish the fire caused by the crash.
This marks yet another incident involving military aircraft in recent times, with a previous F-35B crash occurring last year in South Carolina after the pilot ejected due to a malfunction. The aircraft continued flying unmanned for approximately 60 miles before crashing in a field.
