Navy pilots killed

MERIDIAN, Miss. (NNS) -- The Navy has released the identity of the pilots killed when their T-45C aircraft crashed in Tellico Plains, Tennessee, Oct. 1.

Lt. Patrick L. Ruth, 31, of Metairie, Louisiana, and Lt. j.g. Wallace E. Burch, 25, of Horn Lake, Mississippi, died when their aircraft went down in the Cherokee National Forest in eastern Tennessee. Both pilots were assigned to the "Eagles" of Training Squadron (VT) 7 based at Naval Air Station Meridian, Mississippi.

Ruth had been in the Navy for nine years and was a member of VT-7 since 2015. Burch had been in the Navy for nearly three years and was a member of VT-7 since 2016.

An investigation is underway to determine the cause of the mishap

That sucks.

From the story, it sounds like they rode it in. Outside the pattern, that is weird in an ejection seat airplane.

RIP men.

If you don't smell ozone, the radiation won't kill you before next week.

Hopefully this isn't another case of the oxygen system failing on those planes.
