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.
