T-45 Crashes Aboard NAS Pensacola – Crew Survives

George H.W. Bush is in the Atlantic Ocean conducting carrier qualifications.

The Navy reports that, at approximately 10:30 this morning, a U.S. Navy T-45C Goshawk aircraft crashed at the approach end of a runway at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla.

While initially reporting that the condition of the two pilots was unknown, and that rescue operations were underway, the Navy now reports that the crew survived the crash and are being treated at a local hospital.

The two-seat training aircraft, assigned to Training Squadron 86, was conducting a local training flight.
