A Boeing T-45 Goshawk training aircraft belonging to the US Navy is believed to have crashed with two crew members aboard reported missing.

The Boeing T-45 Goshawk training aircraft with a crew of two did not return to base after training flight in the state of Tennessee, US Navy said Sunday in a statement.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office said the jet crashed in the Cherokee National Forest near a fish hatchery.

The U.S. Navy said it was investigating reports of a military jet that crashed near Tellico Plains, Tennessee, on Sunday evening, as it appeared unlikely that the crew survived.

The Navy told reporters a T-45 jet was missing after it took off from Naval Air Station Meridian in Mississippi with an instructor and student pilot on board.

The Navy had  grounded all 197 training jets indefinitely in April, following  reports that pilots were refusing to fly the T-45s due to problems with its oxygen system. The T-45 is used to train all U.S. Navy student-pilots in jet aircraft flying.
