Mirage fighter crashes, pilot ejects safely
A Mirage fighter jet crashed Tuesday in southwest France but the pilot managed to eject safely, an air force commander said.
The Mirage 2000 was on an unarmed mission when it went down in a wooded area, not far from the Mont-de-Marsan airbase, said the commander, Christophe Oursel. The pilot suffered slight injuries, he added.
