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.


The T-45 was from Training Air Wing ONE in Naval Air Station (NAS) Meridian, Mississippi.

“At this time, we know the wing had a T-45C Goshawk training in the vicinity of Tellico Plains that has not yet returned to the air station,” the Navy said on Sunday.
