BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:45 A.M.) – The new U.S.-made F-35 stealth jet reportedly crashed in Florida during a routine training exercise, the Eglin Air Force Base said on Twitter.

The aircraft, which belonged to the 58th Fighter Squad crashed around 9:30 P.M. local time and did not cause any damage or loss of life. The base has launched an investigation into the matter.

The incident comes just days after a F-22 Raptor fighter crashed while performing a test flight last Friday.

Similarly to the latest crash, there were no casualties or damage caused by the incident and the pilot ejected to safety.
