911 call shows bizarre circumstances of F-35 ejection: 'Not sure where the airplane is,' pilot says

  • A military jet crashed in a residential area near Charleston International Airport, prompting the pilot to eject and land safely using a parachute. The pilot requested an ambulance, indicating potential injuries.
  • The crashed jet, an F-35, continued flying for 60 miles after the pilot ejected, suggesting that flight control software may have helped stabilize the aircraft. The plane eventually crashed in a rural area near Indiantown. Questions remain about why the jet wasn't tracked and why it took more than a day to locate it.
  • The technical issues plaguing the F-35 program potentially contributed to the crash, according to a report. The F-35 fleet was found to be only 55% effective due to inadequate training, limited spare parts, and complex repair processes.
