F-18 Jet Crash Hero

***********Navy still hasn't paid for blowing up my apartment .

The U.S. Navy has not forked over a single cent to one of the men whose apartment was obliterated in last week's F-18 crash ... so says the man himself ... who's now considering legal action.

TMZ spoke with Colby Smith -- who rushed out of his apartment and helped save one of the pilots from the wreckage following Friday's crash in Virginia.

Colby tells us, the Navy agreed to pay for a hotel room for him and his family after the disaster -- but this morning, the hotel kicked 'em out ... because the Navy hadn't paid.

Colby says his fam had to shell out $400 for the room ... and will be changing hotels tonight. So far, we're told the Navy still hasn't sent a check.

According to Colby, the Navy also agreed to cover all damages stemming from the accident -- but a government rep said it could take up to 2 years before that payment is processed.

Colby tells us a 2 year wait is unacceptable ... and has already met with a lawyer in the hopes of expediting the process.

As for daily expenses -- we're told the Navy is paying out $89 per person per day for lodging, $30 per day for food, and $200 TOTAL for clothing.

Calls to the Navy were not returned.


  1. That is not acceptable. The navy should take care of the people they work for. Namely, the public.
    I think if they make enough publicized stink the navy will move quicker.

  2. I agree .

    It do seem that the service-people that's protecting our country is always left behind .

    Always a day late ... a dollar short .... that seems to be the norm these days .


Come on in , set awhile and have a cup of tea and cookies , as always you are welcome .
