Farmers have described the American F15 fighter jet crash in Weston Hills as “a tragedy”.
The pilot and second crewman ejected safely but David and Michael Fletcher witnessed the jet come down within sight of their land.
David said: “I saw them jiggering about like they do – he was in a flat spin and then nose-diving into the ground. I was just amazed.”
He saw a helicopter, which he assumed was from the American military, arrive at the crash scene.
Michael said: “It’s a tragedy, isn’t it?”
The Spalding Guardian was able to video the crash scene from their land.
