Oops. Training missile part falls off Navy jet
Friday - 4/22/2011, 6:46am EDT
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - The Navy is investigating an incident in which a training missile part fell off a fighter jet and hit an unoccupied pickup truck in Virginia Beach.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that the vehicle sustained minimal damage and the aircraft wasn't damaged.
Naval Air Force Atlantic says the F/A-18 Hornet was returning to Oceana Naval Air Station from a routine mission Thursday when a wing from the training missile fell off. The missile wasn't carrying live explosives.
The Navy didn't identify the pilot, who wasn't injured.
