U.S.A British F-35B fighter jet crashed in the Mediterranean on Wednesday, but the pilot used his exit seat and escaped the crash, the British Ministry in London announced.
This single-seater aircraft, operated by the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth, was on its way back from its first voyage across the Suez Canal to the Chinese Ocean.
The F-35B, a fifth-generation hijacked fighter jet, crashed in the Mediterranean Sea at about 11:00 HB during a routine mission. A spokesman for the UK Ministry of Defense told the Press Association (PA) that the pilot had been ejected and found alive before the plane crashed into the sea.
The pilot was taken aboard the aircraft carrier and an investigation was launched to determine the cause of the crash.
The UK has ordered 48 F-35Bs – vertical take-off and landing aircraft, similar to those used by the US Navy. The unit price of each device is estimated at around மில்லியன் 100 million (approximately 9 119 million). London is considering an additional order.
The aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, in the first part of their deployment, took part in bombings against jihadist group positions.
