Hawker Hunter Crashes in California
Federal aviation investigators were at the scene Wednesday night of the fiery crash of a fighter jet during a training mission near Point Mugu Naval Air Station that killed the pilot.The jet came down around 5:13 p.m. in an agricultural field near Hueneme Road at Highway 1, according to the Ventura County Fire Department.“I just saw this jet going down really fast … and all I saw was a big cloud of smoke,” said witness Brian Rivera. The plane was identified as a Hawker Hunter aircraft that flies out of Point Mugu, according to Kimberly Gearhart from Naval Base Ventura County. The aircraft is a one person jet that usually flies in a test range around the base, but crashed outside that range somewhere along Highway 1, Gearhart said.“This aircraft was returning home … was on it’s final approach to land and something went wrong,” she said.
