Navy training jet crashes in Pensacola, Fla.

NAVAL AIR STATION PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) – A spokesman says a training jet has crashed at Naval Air Station Pensacola and the flight instructor and student pilot have been taken to the hospital.

Air station spokesman Harry White says the condition of the pilots wasn’t immediately known Monday.

He says the two-seat U.S. Navy T-45C Goshawk crashed at the end of a runway while it was landing.

The Navy wasn’t immediately naming the pilots.

White said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

Hundreds of Navy flight students earn their Naval flight wings at Naval Air Station Pensacola each year.
