An F/A-18F Super Hornet attached to the aircraft carrier Dwight D. Eisenhower crashed Monday in the North Arabian Sea. No one was injured.
The Super Hornet encountered an engine failure at 12:20 p.m. local time, the Navy stated in a news release. The incident is under investigation.
The two members of the aircrew, from Virginia Beach-based Strike Fighter Squadron 103, ejected safely and were picked up by search and rescue swimmers from Helicopter Anti-submarine Squadron Five.
Ike is deployed to 5th Fleet.
