The kindhearted man who offered a helping hand to the pilot in his time of need was a common fisherman. The pilot was in his senses when he was shifted to a hospital for intensive care. The current condition of the former cockpit occupier is not known though.
The aircraft, the rescued man was operating, is the property of Fighter Squadron 143. As for its make, it is a product of the Boeing Company. As a double engine fighter plane, many of its kind have been in use since the early 80s.
This particular variant began its operations in 2001. The mysterious crash occurred approximately seven days after a military helicopter sank off the Virginia coast. The incident was tragic since three of the five members on board lost their lives.
It is a miracle that the current crash pilot is alive and well despite the severity of the crash. And credit goes to the “Good Samaritan” fisherman who was near enough to come to his aid. The biblical reference to the “Good Samaritan” who helps and heals someone who is injured is the perfect example of the fact that virtue is its own reward.
