DEERFIELD, Va. (AP) — Military officials say the jet that crashed in western Virginia was an Air Force F-15C based in Massachusetts, and the pilot’s status is unknown.

Pentagon spokesman Air Force Lt. Col. Tom Crosson says the pilot of the single-seat aircraft was with the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts Air National Guard.

Guard spokesman Maj. Matthew Mutti says the jet was on a standard training exercise Wednesday with no munition onboard. He didn’t say where it was headed or release the pilot’s name.

Augusta County dispatcher Becky Coynter says witnesses reported an explosion-like noise just before 9 a.m. She says military officials in Washington reporting losing communication with a jet.

Police say they located a crash site in Deerfield, about 135 miles northwest of Richmond, with smoke coming from a mountainside. No injuries are reported on the ground
