    VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - The Navy confirms to WAVY.com that an F18 jet has crashed in Virgnia Beach Friday afternoon.
    Grazia Moyers, spokeswoman for the Virginia Beach Police Department, told WAVY.com just before 12:30 p.m. what police believe is a military aircraft has gone down.
    Commander Rosi with the Navy told WAVY.com the plane was an F18 Strike fighter squadron 106.
    Further information is not available at this time.
    Police are responding to the scene at this time and will assist the military and the State Police, Moyer added.
    Virginia Department of Transportation traffic cameras show thick, black smoke rising from the Birdneck Road area Friday afternoon around 12:30 p.m.
    WAVY.com has a crew on the way to the scene and will have more as soon as it comes in.

    Local reports say it hit an apartment complex......more to come.
