Military Jet Fighter Crashes During Training in Nevada

LAS VEGAS -- A spokesman for Nellis Air Force Base says a military jet fighter has crashed during training near Caliente, Nev.

Base spokesman Chuck Ramey says one person was on board the F-16C Fighting Falcon when it went down Tuesday evening in southeastern Nevada. The person's condition was not immediately known.

The base is on the outskirts of Las Vegas, but the plane went down about 90 miles northeast of the city.

The plane involved was the type used by the Air Force's aerial demonstration team, the Thunderbirds.

The crash was previously reported by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Ramey told the newspaper he did not know the cause of the crash.
