  • Marine F-35 jet crashes in South Carolina

The Beaufort Marine Corps Air Station pilot who ejected from an F-35 jet Friday morning before it crashed on Little Barnwell Island has been released from the hospital, according to Lt. Samuel Stephenson of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing.

"It's a total loss", an unnamed Marines official told the AFP news agency.

The report said that the pilot safely ejected from the aircraft and was being evaluated for injuries, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office.

The F-35 stealth jet has three variants - F-35A, F-35B, and F-35C - designed for the US Air Force, Marine Corps, and Navy, respectively.

No-one on the ground was hurt either in the crash.

The footage is said to be showing the scene one hour after the crash.

Trump claims he rejected Trudeau meeting over Nafta frustrations
President Trump suggested that a potential U.S. -Mexico-Canada trade deal could be called USMC. The U.S. president stayed seated as he extended his hand for a cursory handshake.

The crash came on the same day that the Pentagon announced an $11.5 billion contract for 141 F-35 fighter jets from Lockheed, which lowers the price for the most common version of the stealthy jet by 5.4 percent.

Once servicing and maintenance costs for the F-35 are factored in over the aircraft's lifespan through 2070, overall program costs are expected to rise to $1.5 trillion. Israel and Britain are among countries committed to buying F-35s. It can also take off in a much shorter space than other fighter jets.

Global sales are projected at more that 3,000 aircraft, and the programme is likely to last for some 30 to 40 years. Military officials said the crash was under investigation.

"You like the F-35?" he asked.

US President Trump has repeatedly praised the F-35, saying that the enemy "cannot see" it.
