Military Jet Crashes in Southern Area of Phoenix

A navy subsonic plane took a downward spiral in the Maricopa region near the Gila River Indian Community Reservation. It was a good thing that the pilot had securely taken the ejector seat and parachute landing route well before the plane crashed into the ground. As for the plane that got destroyed, it was an AV-8B Harrier. A sergeant spoke of how the plane and the pilot ended up in the same locus on land. 

And it was a miracle that the field had a sparse population. The timing of the crash was 2:25 pm. The pilot just incurred a small injury on the bridge of his nose. The reason behind the crash was engine failure. 

As for the aircraft, it was burnt to a stump and lay there giving off smoke in the wasteland. The region around the jet plane has been cordoned. An investigative procedure is to go into effect soon. 

The FAA will also be involved in the whole issue. The pilot meanwhile has been transferred to the Chandler Regional Medical Center. He was found wearily walking in the wilderness. There have been rumors of the presence of a missile within the crash site but they have not been confirmed. 

This of course could prove dangerous since if the missile explodes anytime in accordance to the law of chance nothing could be done to save any human beings in the surrounding locus. That is why the area has been declared to be under quarantine and is strictly off-limits to anyone except army personnel and experts. 

The AV-8B Harrier is a subsonic aircraft that is used for fighting and exploration purposes. It is also termed the “jumper jet” and costs approximately $30 million. But it is not the money that matters in the end but the fact that there was no loss of human life in the crash.
