US Navy investigating reported jet crash in Tennessee

At about 6 p.m. 1 October, NAS Meridian received reports of a jet crash near Tellico Plains, Tennessee, about 112km (70mi) south of Knoxville.

But Monroe County Sheriff's Office later revealed the plane had crashed in Tellico Plains in the Cherokee National Forest on Sunday.

The plane was based at Naval Air Station Meridian in MS, part of one of five naval air training wings.
