An Air National Guard F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet crashed Wednesday morning near Washington, D.C., an official said.

The plane went down at 9:17 a.m. local time in an unpopulated area several miles south of National Harbor, Maryland, where U.S. military and industry officials are meeting for the Navy League’s annual Sea-Air-Space conference, according to the official who spoke to on the condition of anonymity.

The status of the pilot from D.C. Air National Guard’s 113th Wing wasn’t immediately available, though initial reports indicated the airman safely ejected from the fourth-generation fighter made by Lockheed Martin Corp.

A spokesman for Joint Base Andrews wouldn’t confirm any details about the incident, but said a press release with additional information would be forthcoming.

This story will be updated.
