    One thing that concerns me, of all the articles I've read on this so far, there is absolutely no mention of the status of any of the apartment residents.

    Definitely not a great day to wreck into a residential area seeing as many schools have Good Friday off. My thoughts go out to those who may have been harmed!

    Provided that no one was hurt, then at least it was good that it was the "cheap" jet they crashed.. and not that flying money box called the F-22.

    No injuries reported as of yet.

    The first line in the quoted article says "The two-man crew ejected, and there are reports of injuries on the ground."

    Does that not count as reported injuries?

    I read a different source than the quoted article. Sorry there is only one article for the subject.

    Re: F-18 crashes into apartment complex

    We had a similar event here in San Diego in '08, a F-18 crashed into a house killing 4 (Wife, 2 daughters and MIL). The pilot was on a carrier mission, developed engine(s) trouble, was told to land at an inland field (Miramar) instead of the ocean approach at North Island. Needless to say, he didn't make it. The govt admitted fault, admitted that he should have been directed to NAS North Island...and only paid out $17M to the husband.

    I hope this incident turns out better.

    I am hoping with all my hope that there are no or as little as possible victims.
