NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. (AP) - Base officials didn’t disclose whether pilots were hurt or the amount of damage to two U.S. Air Force fighter jets that collided on the ground during the weekend at Nellis Air Force in Nevada.

A statement from the 99th Air Base Wing public affairs office said the pilots were medically evaluated after the 11:20 a.m. Saturday incident following their return from a flight operation to the base outside Las Vegas.

A base spokesman, Senior Airman Thomas Spangler, declined Monday to answer additional questions.

The statement says the F-16 Fighting Falcons are assigned to the 301st Fighter Wing at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, Texas.

A safety board will investigate the crash.
