  1. Hi Kathryn, why is the latest F-16 crash in Las Vegas not reported?
    The pilot of a fighter jet owned and operated by a military contractor died when the aircraft crashed in a northeast Las Vegas neighborhood Monday afternoon, Nellis Air Force Base officials said.

    The Draken US aircraft, identified as a Dassault Aviation Mirage F-1 fighter jet, went down for unknown reasons in a residential area just south of the base shortly before 2:30 p.m. The unidentified pilot was the only person on board, according to a Nellis news release.
