The pilot of a US fighter jet was killed when the plane crashed into farmland on the Suffolk-Cambridgeshire border, the US Embassy in London has confirmed.
The single-seat jet was a supersonic F-18, the embassy added. An investigation has now been launched by the Air Force.
The plane had taken off from the RAF Lakenheath air base, and came down near Redmere.
Reports suggest it was heading back to the US after deployment in the Middle East when it crashed.
