A U.S. Air Force fighter jet crashed yesterday off South Korea’s west coast. The pilot was rescued by a South Korean Air Force team.
According to the U.S. military, an F-16 went down in the ocean 56 miles southwest Gunsan, North Jeolla province, at 10:05 a.m. The cause of the crash is unknown, a U.S. spokesman, said.
Air Force Captain Kevin Dydyk was flying the jet on a routine training mission. He ejected safely. Captain Dydyk was taken to a U.S. medical facility in Gunsan around noon where he was pronounced in good condition.
