“Two Navy pilots and two crew members bailed out safely from a E-2C Hawkeye Monday afternoon when it crashed in the vicinity of Wallops Island, Virginia, the Navy said in a press release.

The crew, assigned to the Airborne Command & Control Squadron (VAW) 120 Fleet Replacement Squadron on board Naval Station Norfolk, was conducting a training flight at the time of the crash, the Navy said. The plane crashed at about 3:50 p.m., though initial reports indicate no structures or people on the ground were injured or damaged.

The pilots and crew members bailed out through the aircraft's main cabin door using parachutes, the Navy said. The crew are required to strap on parachutes when they first get aboard the plane.”

First time I hear about an Hawkeye crashing :eek1:. These planes are very reliable.

The Chinese aircraft that crashed last week in which rumors circulated that it was an SU-35 that got shot down was actually a J-10. The aircraft that crashed belonged to the 2nd Air Division which operates J-10s
