F-16 Arizona Crash: Human Remains Found

The military says that human remains have been found at F-16 crash site in Arizona. Luke Air Force Base says in a statement late Thursday night that while a coroner will make the identification, the discovery "is another indication the pilot did not survive the accident."

The pilot's name wasn't immediately released. The pilot of the F-16, however, was not a member of the U.S. military.

Instead, the F-16 which crashed near Bagdad, Arizona was piloted by a student from Taiwan. Base officials say the pilot was six months into a training program at Luke, which is a major training base for the Air Force and foreign military services.

They say the crash occurred about 8:30 a.m. Thursday as the student pilot and an instructor in another F-16 were engaged in air-to-air combat training.

Authorities say the cause of the crash isn't immediately known.
