The two pilots, an instructor and a student, did not survive the crash, according to the Navy's statement.

In late September, leaders of the Navy team investigating physiological episodes confirmed to Military.com that T-45s had resumed training flights in August, but said there had been four pilot physiological episodes since then.

According to WBIR, officials sent helicopters to look for parachutes in the area but were unable to find any. The status of both people is unknown, the statement said.
