Military Plane Crashes In Augusta
Posted Wednesday, August 27th 2014 @ 12pm

Augusta County, VA _  The Augusta County Sheriff's Office is confirming that a military plane has crashed in the Deerfield community, west of Staunton.

 

Virginia State Police say they were notified just after 9:00 a.m. that a plane had gone down.  They say they've visually located the crash through heavy smoke coming from the side of a mountain and are en route to the crash site.

 

There have been no reported injuries on the ground – meaning no local residents have been injured as a result of the crash.

 

VSP is not confirming the type of aircraft until crews reach the wreckage, but the Pentagon confirms it was an F-15 fighter jet from the Massachusetts Air National Guard that went down en route to New Orleans for an upgrade.
