San Diego, California-? Members of the California US Senate delegation joined the voices that are urging an open and in depth investigation be held in the recent US Marine Corps crash of a F/A 18 Super Hornet jet into a home.
The jet crashed into a residential home and the crash killed two young ladies, their mother and their grandmother. The Crash occurred on Monday, December 9th.
In a joint worded letter to the Commandant of the US Marine Corps, US General James Conway, California Senators Dianne Feinstein, D- California and Barbara Boxer, D- California are asking for an investigation.
They want a swift and in depth look at the entire F/A 18 Super Hornet Marine Corps Fleet, and are asking that the fleet be grounded until the investigation is complete. The Jet that crashed took off from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln that was steaming about 50 miles offshore from San Diego.
There are currently about 635 F/A 18 Super Hornets in Service in US Marine Corps Service, and at this time there is no plans to ground the fleet, but an investigation of the latest crash on Monday is a near certainty, according to military officials.
