NEWS ALERT F/A-18 fighter jet crashes on takeoff at Raleigh-Durham airport. Pilot ejects but condition unknown. Details soon.


This is all that's out as of right now. Here's hoping it was nothing terror related.

The pilot, who was the only person on board, ejected before the crash. He was transported to Wake Medical Center and is reportedly in good condition.

According to a man named Mark who called in from the Airport to 96Rock, the F-18s were taking off in tandem, but the second pilot decided to show off and hit his afterburners. He then lost control, bounced a couple times and then ejected.

Last I heard the RDU Airport was closed for the afternoon. No idea when flights will start again.
