Navy F-18 crashes in Va. Beach | WAVY.com | Virginia Beach, Va.

That's not too far from where I used to live. The pilots have ejected safely. So far no casualties reported on the ground, but 4 buildings in the apartment complex have been damaged or destroyed. The major highway to the beach is shut down. This is horrible....

Eyewitness say the wing fell off. Sounds like the jet crashes right after take off.

As of this morning, they are reporting NO fatalities and everyone accounted for. They are saying they can't confirm no one was killed, but they are optimistic. Totally amazing!

Glad to hear you weren't in the crash radius Spool...

Did everyone make it out of the crash area?

Flat out amazing that a jet can hit 3 different apartment complex buildings, and not a single person died in the entire incident. Nothing like an Easter weekend miracle, I guess...

No fatalities is amazing. I am sure there are a few people who are happy they were not home at the time. Good Lord was watching out once again.........
