A recently released video shows the moment a bird flew into a Navy plane during a training exercise before it crashed into a Texas residential area, damaging at least one home.
The crash occurred on Sept. 19, 2021 when a U.S. Navy T-45C Goshawk jet trainer from Kingsville was due to land at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in Fort Worth, TBEN Dallas reported.
The footage shows a bird flying into the jet while the plane was descending. The pilot is heard saying that he has an emergency and would try to reach a runway.
During the incident, he says he won’t make it until crashing into Lake Worth, a few miles from the reserve base.
Both pilots on the plane, a student and an instructor, were ejected before the crash, the news outlet reported. One of them had their parachute stuck in power lines, while the other was found nearby.
No one was seriously injured.
The cleanup of the crash was completed a few weeks after the crash, but no one was seriously injured.
