Navy jet crash: Navy training jet crashes in Pensacola

Navy jet crash: A US Navy T-45C Goshawk aircraft crashed during a training flight at Naval Air Station Pensacola. The Navy training jet was landing it when it crashed.

A training jet crashed at Naval Air Station Pensacola Monday, an official said.

A flight instructor and a Navy flight student were transported to a nearby hospital, said Harry White, spokesman for Naval Air Station Pensacola. Their conditions weren't immediately known.

The US Navy T-45C Goshawk aircraft crashed at the approach end of a runway Monday morning. The two-seat training aircraft, assigned to Training Squadron 86, was conducting a local training flight and was landing it when it crashed, White said.

The Navy wasn't immediately naming the pilots.

White said the cause of the crash is under investigation.

Hundreds of Navy flight students earn their Naval flight wings at Naval Air Station Pensacola each year. The students begin their flight training flying with experienced pilots in the training aircraft.

White said the base was thankful the crash wasn't more serious.

"We can repair or replace an aircraft," he said.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
