F-16 Fighter Jet Crashes in Southern Wisconsin

A fighter jet has crashed in southern Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Air National Guard officials say in a statement that an F-16 from the Madison-based 115th Fighter Wing went down early Tuesday afternoon near the town of Chester in Adams County during a routine training flight.

The pilot ejected and his condition is being evaluated.

The guard has requested U.S. Air Force investigators probe the cause of the crash. Guard spokeswoman Lt. Col. Jackie Guthrie didn't immediately return messages.
