FALLON, Nev. (AP) — The Navy said Sunday night that the military pilot was killed when a fighter jet crashed during a training exercise in western Nevada a day earlier.

A spokeswoman for the Naval Air Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet said officials have determined the pilot’s status on Sunday. Lt. Reagan Lauritzen said it took rescue crews several hours to reach the site of Saturday’s crash on a Navy range training complex east of Naval Air Station Fallon because of a snow storm and mountainous, remote terrain. When they got there, they determined the F/A-18C, a U.S. Marine jet on loan to the Naval Strike and Air Warfare Center, was a total loss.

The pilot’s name was being withheld pending notification of next of kin. The cause of the crash was under investigation.
