· Sep 19, 2023 ·

Ladies and gentlemen, it's all over. The missing American F-35 fighter jet has been found in a debris field about two hours northeast of Joint Base Charleston.

AP reports:

The crash site for a stealth fighter jet that went missing during the weekend after its pilot ejected was located Monday in rural South Carolina after the military asked the public for help finding an aircraft built to elude detection.

The debris field was discovered in Williamsburg County, about two hours northeast of Joint Base Charleston. Residents were being asked to avoid the area while a recovery team worked to secure it.

That's an $80 million aircraft destroyed. The pilot is in stable condition, having parachuted to safety on Sunday afternoon before the crash.

"The mishap is currently under investigation, and we are unable to provide additional details to preserve the integrity of the investigative process," the Marine Corps said in a news release on Monday evening…

Not a good look for our military, but we can all breathe a little easier now that we know the aircraft is accounted for.
