MOLINE, Kan. (AP) - The Oklahoma Air National Guard says two of its fighter jets collided over southeast Kansas during a training exercise, with one pilot ejecting from one of the aircraft.

The Oklahoma Guard’s Col. Max Moss said neither pilot was seriously injured in the midair collision Monday afternoon.

Moss said one of the F-16’s returned safely to its base in Tulsa. The second crashed and burned in a field in Kansas.

Moss said the pilot of the crashed plane was taken to McConnell Air Force Base hospital in Wichita for evaluation, but is not believed to be seriously injured.

He said the collision occurred during a training exercise northeast of the Elk County town of Moline.
