F-16 jet crashes outside Washington, DC
The pilot ejected safely and was recovered by a military rescue helicopter, Air Force officials told AP.
The F-16 from the 113th Wing was on a training mission, and crashed in a wooded area of Clinton, Maryland. The plane reportedly belonged to the Maryland Air National Guard.
Initial reports spoke of a F-15 Eagle as the jet involved in the crash. The F-16 Falcon is a single-engine fighter widely used by the US Air Force and National Guard units.
