LOS ANGELES: An F-16 warrior jet being flown in slight training exercises crashed into a room only outward Mar Air Reserve Base in Southern California on Thursday (May 16), though a commander safely ejected and no injuries were reported, a bottom orator said.

The Los Angeles Times, citing a bottom glow official, reported that a pile-up lighted a tiny fire, and a print of a collision stage posted on internal radio hire KCAL-TV showed a gaping hole in a roof of a vast gray building.

The warplane went down during about 3.30pm and slammed into a room during a finish of a bottom runway, bottom orator Major Perry Covington told Reuters by telephone.

“The commander did eject and a commander is OK, and there are no other injuries during this time,” he said, adding he did not trust anyone was inside a room when a pile-up occurred.

The sprawling installation, located in Riverside County, California, about 105km easterly of Los Angeles, is home to a Air Force Reserve 452nd Air Mobility Wing. There are routinely between 2,000 and 6,000 Air Force reservists and other crew on bottom during any given time, Covington said.

A territory of Interstate 215, a vital north-south track using by a base, was sealed in both directions after a crash, according to a California Highway Patrol. The CHP urged motorists to equivocate a area
