` Us Navy has said Military Pilot has been killed in a crash whilst on a training exercise in western Nevada’

#AceWorldNews says that the US Navy has said that the military pilot had been killed in the crash, a day after a fighter jet went down during a training exercise in western Nevada.

Rescue crews reached the site of Saturday’s crash on a Navy range training complex east of Naval Air Station Fallon amid a snow storm in mountainous, remote terrain. US Pacific Fleet said officials determined the pilot’s status on Sunday.

The F/A-18C, a US Marine jet on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Centre, went down about 70 miles (113km) east of Naval Air Station Fallon, AP reported.
