Air Force fighter jet crashes at Nellis Air Force Base


NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. (AP) - An Air Force fighter jet crashed Friday in southern Nevada, about 50 miles northeast of Nellis Air Force Base. The pilot's condition was not immediately known.

The F-15C aircraft was assigned to the 422nd Test and Evaluation Squadron at Nellis, Air Force officials said in a statement. The crash occurred about 8:35 a.m.

An interim safety board of officers will investigate, officials said.

It was the second crash in a week at the base, which is located about 12 miles northeast of downtown Las Vegas.

An Air Force pilot ejected safely moments before his F-16 crashed March 18 just short of the base's runway
