OCALA, Fla. (AP) - A military pilot is recovering in Florida after his plane went down in the Ocala National Forest north of Orlando.
The 29-year-old pilot was taken by helicopter to Shands Hospital
in Gainesville as a precaution Sunday night.
He was alert and conscious when he was found. It was not immediately known what kind of plane he was flying or what caused it to go down.
Marion County Sheriff's Office officials say the jet was probably flying from Jacksonville.
Workers from the U.S. Navy's Pinecastle Bombing Range in the Ocala National Forest helped search for the pilot after the plane went down.
