A U.S. Air Force F-15C Eagle fighter jet crashed at approximately 9:40 am local time today in the North Sea.

The cause of the crash as well as the status of the pilot are unknown at this time. The pilot remains missing and U.K. Search and Rescue have been called to support.

The jet was from the 48th Fighter Wing, stationed at RAF Lakenheath, United Kingdom.  Col.
