Navy aircraft crashes in Virginia leaving one dead

A Navy aircraft crashed into water in Virginia on Wednesday, with two rescued and one dead.

“Lt. Cmdr. Rob Myers, a public affairs officer with Naval Air Force Atlantic, said the plane was doing a routine exercise when it went down. He confirmed that it was a U.S. Navy E2-D,” according to Fox News.

“Three people were on board in total. Two injured people were rescued and one was found dead in the aircraft, Myers said, WAVY reported,” the report added.

The crash reportedly took place during an operation assisting a military plane crash in Chincoteague Bay.

Virginia Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria said she is continuing to monitor the situation.

“I’m keeping our naval aviators, their families, and our first responders in my thoughts and prayers tonight as rescue and recovery efforts continue,” she wrote.

The tragic report follows the loss of four U.S. armed forces personnel in a training exercise with NATO in Norway last month, reminding us of the dangers of serving the nation.
