The A-10 Thunderbolt military jet from Whiteman Air Force base hit several power lines that cross Stockton Lake, near Bona, about 30 miles northwest of Springfield. A-10 Thunderbolts are single-seat, twin-engine attack jets.

Crews have been working to mark the lake to keep boaters away from submerged power lines.
