Mountain Home Air Force Base Plane Crashes in Asia
A plane from Mountain Home Air Force Base crashed on a routine training mission in Southwest Asia. The Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle crashed Thursday morning. Both crew members ejected safely.
“We are extremely grateful that our Gunfighters are safe,” said Col. Bruce Smith, 366th Fighter Wing Vice Commander. U-S Air Force Central Command says the cause of the crash is under investigation, but was not due to hostile fire or insurgent activity.
More than 300 Airmen from Mountain Home Air Force Base are deployed to support F-15E overseas missions.
