WASHINGTON — Two U.S. Navy pilots were rescued after their A-6E jet crashed into the northern Arabian Sea, the Defense Department said Saturday.
A Pentagon spokesman said the pilots were on a routine training flight from the aircraft carrier Ranger on Friday when the jet crashed.
The pilots ejected and were picked up a few minutes later by a helicopter from the Ranger after parachuting to safety. They were returned to their ship and are in good condition, the Pentagon said.
No cause for the accident was given.
