As you probably already know by now, on Sept. 29, 2020, a U.S. Marine Corps F-35B and a KC-130J belonging to the VMGR-352 “Raiders” based at MCAS Miramar, were involved in a mid-air collision during AAR (Air-to-Air Refueling) operations. The F-35B, callsign VOLT 93 crashed, while the KC-130J, callsign RAIDER 50, performed a safe crash landing on a field near Thermal Airport, California. The single pilot aboard the STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant of the Lightning II stealth jet ejected safely and the Super Hercules crew members survived.

Marine Corps F-35B Crashes, KC-130J Crash Lands After Mid-Air Collision. All Aircrew Safe.

At approximately 16.00LT on Sept. 29, 2020, a U.S. Marine Corps F-35B and a KC-130J made contact during AAR (Air-to-Air Refueling) operations. As a consequence of the mid-air collision, the F-35B crashed while the KC-130J managed to perform a safe crash landing on a field near Thermal Airport, California.

 

The pilot of the STOVL (Short Take Off Vertical Landing) variant of the Lightning II jet ejected safely and, according to the USMC, is being treated. All the KC-130J crew members have been reported safe.
