LONDON (AP) — British authorities say a Royal Navy jet crashed Thursday morning in a wooded area in southeast England after the two pilots ejected from the plane.
Devon and Cornwall Police said the pilots were being assessed at Derriford Hospital in the city of Plymouth following the crash near the Cornish town of Helston.
“Their injuries are not currently thought to be life-threatening or changing,” police said in a statement.
The Ministry of Defense said the pilots are members of the 736 Naval Air Squadron and were on a flight from Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, which is not far from the crash site. The squadron uses the Hawk T1 jet, a two-seat training aircraft which is also used by the Red Arrows, the aerobatics display team of the Royal Air Force.
