No details were given, except that it was a medium altitude emergency and the pilot safely ejected.
The F-16 military jet went down in Owens Valley in Inyo County. The pilot safely ejected from the aircraft.
Pilots at the 144th Fighter Wing are on what’s called a “safety stand down” day, meaning all flights are grounded as part of standard procedure following a crash.
As is standard procedure, the Air Force will investigate the mishap and report it some months from now.
