Just heard the news that an F18 plane from Lakenheath has crashed about 5 miles north west of the base. Hope the pilot managed to bail out.

Some reports are saying the pilot ejected so hopefully.

....... mind you the reports (as always) vary quite a lot so wouldn't believe anything as gospel quite yet!

US Navy F-18 jet has crashed in the Fens in Cambridgeshire, close to an RAF base.

Emergency services are at the scene on farm land in Redmere, near Ely, close to the Suffolk border.

It's at Shippea Hill and in fields. Hopefully that means that no one on the ground has been hurt. Airlive.net confirmed pilot ejected but would rather hear it from RAF Lakenheath themselves.

Sad news, was hoping for better after hearing he had ejected.

Some people are so sick, going online grabbing screenshots and footage that is wrong just so they can post it on Youtube!

Be careful what you believe!
