An F-16 fighter jet crashed into a warehouse while attempting to land at March Air Reserve Base in Southern California, an Air Force official confirmed to Fox News late Thursday.
The pilot was not hurt and there were no immediate reports of injuries on the ground, said Maj. Perry Covington, director of public affairs at the base.
Interstate 215, which runs between the base and the warehouse, was closed in both directions, backing up rush-hour traffic for miles.
Television news footage showed a large hole in the roof and sprinklers on inside the building about 65 miles east of Los Angeles. The jet's cockpit canopy was on a runway and a parachute had settled in a nearby field.
