A British fighter jet has crashed into the Mediterranean while flying, but the pilot managed to eject safely.

The pilot ejected from the F35, from the UK’s flagship aircraft carrier, and is said to be safe.

A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said: ‘A British F35 pilot from HMS Queen Elizabeth ejected during routine flying operations in the Mediterranean this morning.

‘The pilot has been safely returned to the ship and an investigation has begun, so it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time,’ the spokesman said.
