There was a pilot flying over the skies of South Carolina with a one hundred million United States dollar stealth fighter jet before an issue forced him to parachute to safety in the backyard of a random resident’s home. A malfunction that occurred on the jet forced this trained pilot to eject from the aircraft, causing the plane to crash into a wooded area about sixty miles away from where the plane they were flying crashed into the ground. The debris that came from the missing F-35 Lightning II stealth fighter jet was finally located by the United States Military and there are many questions that are being asked by officials as they are investigating the incident.
So far, the United States Marine Corps has not released much information about how the "most expensive" aircraft went missing and crashed. This mishap is currently being documented as a Class-A mishap since the damages that occurred due to this error were over two and a half million US Dollars.
“He’s unsure of where his plane crashed, said he just lost it in the weather,” someone said to the Charleston County Emergency Medical Services when talking about the ejected pilot after they recovered from the ejection from an altitude of one thousand feet in the air.
"How in the hell do you lose an F-35?" stated Rep. Nancy Mace, a republican representative who represents South Carolina, when writing on X (the platform that was originally known as Twitter) about the incident. "How is there not a tracking device and we’re asking the public to what, find a jet and turn it in?"
