Had a phone call from the wife a bit after noon today. An F/A-18D had crashed in Virginia Beach. My daughter, the WSO wasn’t flying today. Both crew members ejected and are in the hospital. No idea of casualties on the ground. But it’s a heavily populated area.
Coming a month to the day after Lex’s crash, it can be frightening to be the father of someone wearing Wings of Gold.
Prayers for those involved.
