Fighter jet disappears near US lake after pilot needs to be ejected

Military personnel are searching for an F-35 Lightning II fighter near Charleston, in the US state of South Carolina, after its pilot ejected on Sunday afternoon (17).

The pilot ejected safely after an “accident” involving the jet and was taken to a local medical center in stable condition, Joint Base Charleston said in a Facebook post.

Emergency response teams are now working to find the aircraft.

The aircraft’s last known position was near lakes Moultrie and Marion, two large bodies of water northwest of the city of Charleston, according to Joint Base Charleston. The military asked for the public’s help in finding the aircraft.

“The public is asked to cooperate with military and civilian authorities as the effort continues,” Joint Base Charleston officials said.

The jet belongs to Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501, a unit focused on training pilots to meet annual training requirements, according to the unit’s website.
