NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — The Navy says the condition of a fighter pilot whose jet crashed off the coast of Virginia is improving.

Naval Air Force Atlantic spokesman Mike Maus said Tuesday that the pilot is listed in good condition. He was originally listed in critical condition by medical staff after being flown by Navy helicopters to a civilian hospital in Norfolk on Jan. 15. The pilot has since been transferred to Naval Medical Center Portsmouth.

The pilot was on a routine training mission in an F/A-18E Super Hornet when something went wrong and he ejected about 45 miles off Virginia Beach.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The name of the pilot has not been released.
