Washington DC [US], October 24 (ANI/Xinhua): Two crew members of a U.S. Naval aircraft were killed as their plane crashed Friday in the southern U.S. state of Alabama.
The ill-fated jet was a T-6B Texan II training aircraft, which crashed at about 5 p.m. local time (2200 GMT) in Foley, Alabama, a town near the Gulf Coast, the U.S. Naval Air Forces said in a statement.
"No civilians were injured on the ground," the Baldwin County Sheriff's Office said on Twitter.
Foley Fire Chief Joey Darby told local news outlets that responders encountered a "large volume of fire" from a home, and firefighters were able to make "a quick stop on the fire." (ANI/Xinhua)
