One year after plane crash, a homeowner still deals with damage

2018/04/05

One year ago on April 5, 2017, an F-16 fighter jet crash landed near Joint Base Andrews in Prince George’s County.
The pilot parachuted to safety and steered the plane away from homes so no one was hurt.

But Reggie Stewart’s Clinton home took a hit and he’s still living with the aftermath.

One year later - there’s still a crack in the window and water damage in the ceiling that has extended, his roof is damaged, his vinyl siding punctured and his foundation cracked.

Cpt. Jonathan Morgan parachuted to safety and we’re told is still being hailed a hero for what he did that day.
An investigation found an engine failure by the manufacturer downed the plane, not caused by anyone in the local unit.
