Pilot Reportedly Ejects Safely
The pilot of a USAF F-15C is reportedly in good condition after
he ejected from his aircraft while on a mission out of Nellis AFB
near Las Vegas, according to the Air Force. It was the third mishap
involving aircraft from Nellis since December -- the second in a
KLAS-TV reports the Eagle (file photo of type, above) was on a
mission not related to the Red Flag war games currently underway at
Nellis. The pilot, whose name and rank haven't yet been released,
reportedly waited at the crash site for 45-minutes before rescuers
arrived. He was hospitalized as a precaution, according to military
"Anytime you lose any aircraft we're all ultimately concerned so
that we can prevent any future instance from happening," Brig. Gen.
Greg Ihde told the Las Vegas TV station.
It was the second aircraft down at
Nellis in a week's time. March 18th, an F-16 went down alongside a
road near Nellis (right). The pilot, an instructor, safely ejected
after trying to return to the runway at Nellis and realizing that
he wasn't going to make it.
The Air Force suffered its first operational
F/A-22 Raptor crash back in December. The pilot
in that mishap was seen shortly afterwards, "walking around the
crash site," apparently in good condition.
