The US Air Force officials believe Lockheed Martin F-16 fighter jet has crashed in the Gulf of Mexico.
This news was released from Tyndall Air Force Base. It has been said that the jet was on a routine training mission over the Gulf Thursday morning when the Florida Panhandle base lost contact. Aircraft and rescue forces were immediately sent to the missing jet’s last known location.
No wreckage has been found so far. In the meantime, the officials are working under the assumption that the plane went down in the water. The U.S. Coast Guard is leading the search. Finding the pilot remains the top priority.
