Two Navy aviators injured in training crash in Florida

Two Navy aviators are expected to recover after a training crash at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., officials said Monday.

The aviators, who were not identified, were hospitalized after the crash Monday morning, base spokesman Harry Whites said by telephone. 

One was in serious condition and the other in fair condition, but both were stable, White said.

The Navy T-45C Goshawk jet crashed at the approach end of a runway Monday morning.

The two-seat training aircraft, assigned to Training Squadron 86, was on a local training flight and was landing it when it crashed, White said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
