Navy Prowler Crashes in Washington State

A U.S. Navy aircraft from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island crashed in eastern Washington on Monday morning, and a newspaper reported that all three crew members died. The Northrop Grumman EA-6B Prowler was reported to have crashed about 8:45 a.m. Monday, Whidbey Island officials said.

Mike Welding, an information officer for the base, said he had no immediate information on the fate of the crew, only that they were on a routine training mission. Prowlers typically carry a four-person crew.
