The pilot of the plane, believed to be an F-18, reportedly ejected safely and parachuted to the ground. Have you heard anymore? I have not heard anything since a quick report.

I thought Universal City was a suburb of Los Angeles. The discussion in the "Top News Headlines" says the crash was in a San Diego neighborhood and even had a quote from the San Diego mayor. So I guess your second reference to University City is the correct one and not Universal city.
