A Navy jet crashed into an apartment complex in Virginia Beach back in April. Amazingly, nobody was killed.
The Navy is releasing its finding into what caused that jet to go down. Simply put — the Navy said both of the plane's engines failed.
Investigators determined that a rare dual-engine malfunction caused one of its jets to crash. The F/A-18D Hornet crashed about 70 seconds after taking off from Naval Air Station Oceana.
No one was killed, but the impact and fire from the crash destroyed 27 apartments and injured seven people.
The jet's two-man crew ejected at the last second possible to survive, 50 feet above the ground.
The investigation said no disciplinary action against the pilots is warranted.
