US F-35C fighter jet crashes in South China Sea

Thriller in the South China Sea. The U.S. Navy’s state – of – the – art fighter jet F – 35 crashed in international waters on Monday. But the Chinese consider that area their own territory. There may now be competition to see who can save the new jet in the US Navy’s fleet first: Americans or Chinese. The latter can get their hands on a valuable piece of U.S. military technology.

The F-35C aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson crashed during a regular voyage on Monday. The $ 100 million stealth bomber struck the carrier’s airstrip and then crashed into the sea. The pilot was able to defend himself through the exhaust seat. He and six sailors aboard the Vinson were wounded.
