Default US Navy T-45 Goshawk Crashes; pilot ejects safely

NAS Kingsville Navy training jet crashes; pilot ejects safely

KINGSVILLE — A Navy training jet crashed in a remote field in McMullen County on Tuesday after the pilot safely ejected, a Navy spokesman said.
No passengers were on board. The pilot had minor injuries and was taken by Coast Guard helicopter to Christus Spohn Hospital in Kingsville. He later was released, said Jon Gagne, public affairs officer for Naval Air Station Kingsville.
The Navy did not release the pilot’s name.
The T-45 Goshawk went down about 10 a.m. on a private ranch about 23 miles north of Freer, Gagne said.
Texas Department of Public Safety Trooper Omar Monrreal said the road nearest the crash site is Farm-to-Market Road 889.
The Navy sent a team of investigators to the site. There was no early indication of what caused the crash or whether the pilot signaled distress, Gagne said.

Navy firefighters sprayed the wreckage to extinguish flames. The wreckage will remain at the site while investigators inspect it. It later will be taken to NAS Kingsville, Gagne said.
The jet was part of Training Air Wing Two. About 200 flight students report to the wing in Kingsville each year for training.
Flights weren’t grounded as a result of the crash but NAS Kingsville will have safety meetings Thursday, Gagne said.
In September, the Navy celebrated 1 million flight hours in T-45s. The twin-seat, single-engine Goshawk trains students to transition to front-line Navy and Marine Corps aircraft. It is the only jet in the world designed to conduct carrier-based flight training, according to the Navy.
The jets cost about $17.2 million.

SOUTH TEXAS MILITARY CRASHES

A look at crashes in the area since 2000.
- June 10, 2010: A student pilot was attempting to land at NAS Kingsville when the T-45 he was flying skidded off the runway, prompting him to eject. He sustained minor injuries and the aircraft landed upside-down.

A Navy report said the pilots performed a standard maneuver called a stall, or a nose dive, from which they did not recover.
