Update: VFA-106 Pilot Rescued Following Ejection

An F/A-18C Hornet from Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 106 crashed about 8:30 a.m. Oct. 14, 60 miles west of Key West, Fla., while on a routine training mission.

The pilot ejected and was recovered by a Coast Guard search and rescue (SAR) boat, transferred to the Naval Air Station (NAS) Key West SAR helicopter and transported to a local hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.

The pilot’s identity has not been released.

VFA-106 is based at NAS Oceana. Known as the “Gladiators”, the squadron is the east coast Fleet Replacement Squadron for the F/A-18 Hornet and Super Hornet aircraft. They routinely deploy detachments to Key West for training.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
