The jet came down on farmland in Redmere, near Ely, Cambridgeshire, with the alarm raised at 10:30 BST. The Hornet aircraft, which had taken off from RAF Lakenheath but was not connected to the base, crashed four miles from RAF Mildenhall in Suffolk. The pilot was the only crew member, police said.
