A South Carolina man became a viral sensation for his wild interview with a local station. He heard what he thought was an F-35 crash outside of his house while “taking a shower” but did not call anyone as he had no idea what it was.

“Randolph White retired from his job at the papermill in Georgetown 10 years ago. He lives in this house with his wife in a very rural area of Williamsburg County. He loves living about two miles away from where he grew up. Normally it’s pretty quiet,” News 2 reporter Raymond Owens explained. The segment then cuts to an interview with White that exploded on social media.

White, 72 years old, told viewers that he had been shaving in the bathroom when he heard a crash.

“I heard a screeching, between a screech and a whistle,” White said before imitating the noise with a clip that has caught the imagination of the public.

White continued, “I asked, ‘What on earth is this?’ and I heard a loud boom.” “And my entire house shook.”

White, the reporter explained, didn’t know it was a plane and didn’t make a call.

White stated, “The first thing that came to my mind was, ‘Did a meteorite from outer space come down?’ If it was an aircraft, it should be reported, because it was flying too low.”

White was alerted the next day by authorities searching for a Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II that had gone missing after its pilot ejected due to a “mishap”.

He thought that someone must have robbed the bank and killed some people when he first saw helicopters. But he soon realized that authorities were looking for the plane.

White explained that “by the grace of God nobody got hurt.” Because there’s a nearby church, which is about half a mile away.

White’s interview with White went viral quickly.

Joint Base Charleston reported that the debris was discovered in Williamsburg County South Carolina.
