A military aircraft crashed and caught fire near Albuquerque International Airport in New Mexico on Tuesday afternoon, airport officials said. 

ABQ Sunport said the aircraft crashed near the airfield on the southside of the airport. 

Video taken of the crash scene appeared to show a military fighter jet, but the exact type of plane has not yet been confirmed by authorities.

One occupant, the pilot, was onboard the aircraft.
