- Debris from a stealth jet that went missing has been found, according to the United States military.
- A pilot ejected from the plane, which kept flying.
- The debris field from the F-35 was found in Williamsburg County, South Carolina.
“Members of the community should avoid the area as the recovery team secures the debris field,” the statement read.
The pilot ejected for unknown reasons and parachuted safely into a North Charleston neighbourhood on Sunday, leaving the jet flying in what some called a “zombie state”.
“How in the hell do you lose an F-35? How is there not a tracking device? And we’re asking the public to, what, find a jet and turn it in?” said Nancy Mace, a member of Congress representing the Charleston area.
So stealthy it was impossible to find
One post showed Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy posing in front of an F-35, suggesting he took it.
At least seven F-35s have been destroyed in previous crashes, due to a range of causes.
