The Navy has reported that it is investigating a T-45 jet crash on Sunday near Tellico Plains, Tennessee, in the Cherokee National Forest. The jet might have been from Training Air Wing ONE in Mississippi, as they have reported that a T-45C Goshawk had not returned from training and is missing.

Two pilots – an instructor and a student – were on board that aircraft, the Navy said. Their status is currently unknown.
