F-18 down

An F-18 flying off a carrier at sea lost one engine, then tried to make it to MCAS Miramar to land. The pilot wasn't able to make it and punched out, landing safely in someone's back yard in the University City neighborhood. The plane crashed into a house just east of University City HS. A neighbor found the pilot and related to KFMB-TV that the pilot told him all of this. KNSD-TV has photo galleries linked from this story. One house on the ground is reported destroyed, plus two cars. A second house is damaged. The fires are now out. No word on whether anyone on the ground was injured. The crash site is Huggins and Cather in San Diego.
