F-16 Jets Collide Mid-Air Over Georgia

Two F-16 fighter jets crashed near Jefferson County, Georgia, late last night. The jets were performing routine night-flying operations over a military operating area. The pilots were able to eject safely. They are expected to be fine.

The pilots are part of the 169th Fighter Wing called the “Swamp Fox”.

Officials say a safety board has been activated. The U.S. Air Force will conduct a detailed safety investigation.

The South Carolina National Guard will hold a news conference to address the crash later this morning in Eastover, South Carolina.
