F-35 Jet Crash Averted: US Military Pilot’s Emergency Parachute Landing near Charleston
According to the Yahoo News, the city of Charleston, South Carolina, recently released the audio recording of a 911 call detailing an emergency involving an F-35 jet crash and the subsequent emergency ejection of a US military pilot. The pilot found himself compelled to parachute into the backyard of a residence situated north of the city on September 17th. During the initial moments of the call, a resident of Charleston alerted the emergency dispatcher to the pilot’s presence in his yard, emphasizing the necessity for an ambulance to be dispatched to his residence.
Throughout the call, the pilot himself can be heard narrating the incident, making reference to an F-35 jet crash and underscoring the urgency of launching a rescue operation, even though he lacked precise knowledge of the plane’s location, which was presumed to have crash-landed elsewhere. Subsequent to the occurrence on Sunday, during which the F-35 jet experienced an undisclosed mishap and went missing, the US military initiated a public appeal for assistance in tracking down the aircraft.
