Two pilots narrowly escaped severe injuries after ejecting from a British military jet in south-west England, which later crashed into a field. They are currently undergoing medical treatment. The pilots did not sustain life-threatening injuries, said a spokeswoman for Cornwall Air Ambulance.
“Two pilots are being checked by medics after ejecting from a Royal Navy Hawk aircraft,” the UK’s Ministry of Defence said in a statement. Hawks are twin-seat fast jet aircraft which are usually used for training purpose.
It also said that an investigation will commence into the incident involving Royal Navy Hawk aircraft that was based not far from the site of the crash in Helston, on the tip of England’s most westerly point. The Ministry further said it would not be providing any further detail into what had happened at this time.
