The crash remains under investigation.

A woman answering the phone at Naval Air Station Oceana said she was told she could not "give any information out" regarding media reports that the crew is stationed at the Virginia Beach base.

The Navy added that the jet, which was on a training flight, is part of Strike Fighter Squadron 213, known as the Blacklions. It experienced a glitch near the Naval Air Station Key West in the area of Chica Key, Xinhua quoted authorities as saying.
