- The pilot of an A-10 ejected before the single-seat gunship crashed in western Germany on Friday, the Air Force said.
The pilot, whose name was withheld until family members are notified, was being treated for injuries, according to a statement from Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany. No other details about the pilot were available, said Spangdahlem spokeswoman Airman 1st Class Brittney Frees.
The A-10 crashed about 3:57 p.m. local time north of the city of Wittlich near Laufeld, during a routine training mission, the statement said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
