“The pilot ejected safely in an unpopulated area. More information will be provided as it’s available,” a US Air Force official said.

Prince George’s County fire department spokesman Mark Brady told WRC-TV that one pilot parachuted out of the aircraft and was picked up by a military helicopter. He said the pilot was found in the same general area as the plane.

“The aircraft was flying along with other DCANG aircraft in a routine training mission in the greater Washington area,” the base tweeted.

Brady said homes in the area are being evacuated.

A witness told Fox 5 DC/WTTG that he was sitting on his porch when he heard a loud explosion. He said the jet was on fire and he saw the pilot eject.

“It was the biggest fire ball I’ve ever seen in my life,” Patrick Dotson said.

He said he ran into the woods after the plane crashed and saw the pilot standing up. Dotson said the pilot asked if the neighborhood was OK because he had live rounds on board.

Air Force official have not confirmed if there was live ammunition on board the place.

One resident told NBC Washington that she’s used to jets performing training missions in the area, but when the crash occurred, her home shook “like an earthquake.”

“I heard a really loud boom,” she said. “I was really concerned about my neighbors and whether (the plane) hit someone’s home.”

Military officials continued to investigate the cause of the crash.

“Very fortunate that we didn’t have any lives lost today,” Ben Barksdale, deputy chief of the Prince George’s County Fire/EMS Department, told reporters.

The Air National Guard’s 113th Wing are frontline fighters poised to defend the capital and provide support to other forces. Its F-16Cs can cost about $20 million each.

Since 9/11, there is always at least one F-16 on eight minute alert status to take off in the case of emergency.

God Bless.
