Spanish air force jets crash in Atlantic, pilots safe

Madrid – Two Spanish air force F-18 jets crashed in the Atlantic Tuesday after apparently hitting each other, but the pilots ejected safely from the aircraft, emergency services said.

The accident took place in a military training zone off Spain’s Canary Islands, and the two pilots were rescued by a passing helicopter in the area, an official of the air rescue service told RNE national radio.

He said the two airmen were undergoing routine medical tests following the accident.
