A fighter pilot from Toledo's 180th Fighter Wing, Ohio Air National Guard, is believed to be dead after a crash while flying an F-16 today during a close-air-support mission in Iraq. Steve Fought, a spokesman for Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur's office said, "It is believed the pilot died in the crash."
Condolences to the pilot and his/her family.
The article states that no one else was aboard the jet. Comforting, considering most USAF F-16s are single seaters...
