Switzerland Jet Crashes In France, Pilot Injured

A military pilot has been injured, after a Swiss army jet crashed, due to unknown causes, in France.

The Swiss army said one of its Boeing F/A-18 jets crashed in France on a training mission on Wednesday, injuring the pilot.

The single-seat aircraft – one of a 31-strong fleet – took off from a Swiss air base in Payerne and came down in an uninhabited area east of the French city of Besancon, the military added.

The defence ministry said it did not know what caused the accident.
