The pilot successfully ejected from the fifth-generation fighter jet but the pilot's condition was not immediately known, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The jet involved in the incident is believed to have cost around $100m (£77m), although a new Pentagon contract announced on Friday for a record 141 F-35 jets has brought the cost down to around $89.2m per aircraft, according to Reuters.

The plane in the SC crash was one of 245 F-35 fighter jets in the USA military, a Pentagon official said, and one of a total of 320 F-35 jets being flown around the world.

So far, the US military has taken delivery of 245 F-35s, majority to the US Air Force.

On Thursday, a Marine F-35B fighter carried out the first combat airstrike by the American version of the costly fighter.

The crash came a day after the type was used in its first combat sortie.
