USMC AV-8B Harrier went down in Craven County, North Carolina around 6:15pm local time on Monday, May 20th, 2019. The pilot is said to have ejected from the stricken jet and survived.

The jet belonged to 2nd Marine Air Wing based out of Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in the state. Details about the incident and the conditions on the ground where the Harrier went down—roughly 20 miles from MCAS Cheery Point—remain very limited, but it comes as part of a new spate of U.S. tactical aircraft crashes that have occurred in recent weeks
