BAHRAIN (WAVY) - A Virginia Beach-based Navy jet has crashed in the North Arabian Sea Monday.
An F/A-18F Super Hornet crashed in the North Arabian Sea around 12:20 p.m. local time in Bahrain, according to the Navy. The two aircrew safely ejected when the jet incurred an engine failure.
The Navy said the crew was from the VFA-103 "Jolly Rogers" based in Virginia Beach. The crash occurred as the jet was operating near USS Eisenhower.
No one was hurt. The incident remains under investigation.
The crash comes just two days after the first anniversary of another Navy jet crash in Virginia Beach. On April 6, 2012, an F/A-18D jet crashed into the Mayfair Mews apartment complex.
No lives were lost.
The Navy later determined the jet suffered an engine failure.
