An F-35B has crashed in South Carolina near the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort, military officials have confirmed. It is believed that the pilot had safely ejected from the aircraft. The base is home to Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501. Friday’s crash occurred just one day after the Corps' F-35B flew its first combat mission: a ground clearance airstrike in Afghanistan. According to Defense News, the Marine air base at Beaufort, South Carolina, has been training new pilots for the high-tech stealth fighter, but has faced complications over spare parts and the jet’s logistics system.
