Pieces From The Missing $80 Million Charleston Stealth Jet Discovered in SC’s Remote Williamsburg County


Authorities have just discovered wreckage from the missing $80 million F-35 stealth fighter that went down yesterday in South Carolina.

The crash site was identified in the remote area of Williamsburg County, as reported by the Marine Corps’ Joint Base Charleston. Situated approximately two hours from the base, locals have been advised to steer clear of the area during the ongoing recovery operations.

The aircraft, part of the Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron (VMFAT) 501 under the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, was based at the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort when the incident occurred, according to JB Charleston Public Affairs.

Presently, Joint Base Charleston, in collaboration with the Marine Corps and the Federal Aviation Administration, is spearheading the search for the missing aircraft. Early reports suggest the search is centered north of the base, particularly around the scenic Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion areas.

Anyone with potential leads or valuable information regarding the whereabouts of the F-35 is urged to immediately contact the Base Defense Operations Center at 843-963-3600.
