  • Fighter jet smashes into California warehouse after pilot loses control while trying to land

An F-16 fighter jet crashed Thursday into a warehouse just off March Air Reserve Base in Perris, California.

"The NORAD alert aircraft was flying with a standard armament configuration as part of its Operation Noble Eagle commitments", a defense official said, referring to the name of the NORAD alert mission to protect the nation's skies following the 9/11 attacks.

Gallegos said he believed one of his co-workers was struck by something - possibly a falling fire sprinkler - but wasn't seriously hurt.

The pilot ejected safely before the crash and was in good condition, Col. Thomas McNamara, vice commander of the Air Force Reserve's 452nd Air Mobility Wing, said at a news conference Friday.

Firefighters in Riverside County, east of Los Angeles, have requested a hazardous material response team, because the plane was loaded with ordnance and external fuel tanks, according to KNBC-TV.

Perry Covington said. The pilot was taken to a hospital to be checked out but has no major injuries, said base spokesman Reggie Varner. Herrera said there were no major injuries.
