Pilot Feared Dead after F-16 Fighter Jet Crashes in Arizona

An F-16 fighter jet crashed in a remote area near Bagdad, Yavapai County, Arizona, on January 21.

The jet that took off from Luke Air Force Base near Phoenix, was carrying a student pilot from Taiwan when it went down. Authorities said the pilot was practicing air-to-air combat with an instructor as part of training.

According to Brig. Gen. Scott Pleus, commander of the 56th Fighter Wing at Luke, “All indications lead me to believe that the pilot did not survive the accident…But until we have 100 percent confirmation, we will continue search efforts.”

The cause of crash is not clear at the moment.
