BREAKING UPDATE: F-35 Reportedly Found

How does one lose a fighter jet?

This morning, WLTR reported on a missing F-35 stealth fighter aircraft that crashed this weekend. The pilot of the aircraft was reportedly forced to eject due to an onboard failure.

We still don’t know what exactly caused the failure and it has to be noted: the craft was on autopilot when the pilot ejected and survived the crash.

The military tapped the public for aid in sighting the downed aircraft, and now we are seeing reports that the F-35 which was mysteriously downed this morning has been located, well, at least the wreckage was.

Collin Rugg provided the update: “The missing F-35 fighter jet has allegedly been found in a field in Williamsburg County, South Carolina.”

Fox News reported on Sunday:

“Based on the jet’s last-known position and in coordination with the FAA, we are focusing our attention north of JB Charleston, around Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion,” Joint Base Charleston said in a statement on Facebook.

“The public is asked to cooperate with military and civilian authorities as the effort continues,” the base added.

Many Americans found the initial story of the missing F-35 unbelievable and lacking credulity—what followed next was a bevy of memes, arguments, and jokes aimed at the Biden administration and the state apparatus.

On Monday evening NBC News confirmed:

The debris was discovered Monday evening about two hours northeast of Joint Base Charleston, an air base in North Charleston, officials said, without providing further details.
