The Prince George’s County Fire Department responded to a military aircraft that crashed in the county near Joint Base Andrews Wednesday morning, forcing the pilot to eject, according to the Washington Post.
The plane was an F-16 fighter jet from the Air National Guard’s 113th Fighter Wing, according to The Post. The pilot safely parachuted to a nearby location and was transported to a medical facility. His condition is not known at this time.
Mark Brady, a spokesman for the Prince George’s County Fire Department, told The Post that it’s unclear what, if anything, the aircraft crashed into. He also said he’s unsure if the F-16 was inbound or outbound to Joint Base Andrews, where the 113th Fighter Wing is stationed.
Brady initially posted videos of the crash area on Twitter, but they have since been deleted at the request of military police at the location, according to Brady.
