An Air Force T-38 Talon training jet crashed near Laughlin Air Force Base in Del Rio, Texas around 4 p.m Monday resulting in the death of one pilot and the injury of another.

“Our biggest priority at this time is caring for the family and friends of our Airmen,” Col. Michelle Pryor, 47th Flying Training Wing vice commander, said Monday night.

“We are a close knit family, and when a tragedy like this occurs every member of the U.S. Armed Forces feels it. Our people take top priority, and we are committed to ensuring their safety and security,” Pryor continued. – Fox News

Del Rio is located near the Mexican border west of San Antonio.
