U.S. fighter jet crash lands at Bahrain airport

US F-18 fighter crash lands at Bahrain international airport

The U.S. Navy says an F-18 fighter jet has crash landed at Bahrain International Airport and the pilot ejected from the aircraft after it "departed the runway".

The crash disrupted flights to and from the island nation off the coast of Saudi Arabia that's home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet. Images on social media showed the grey fighter jet's nose tipped into the air but largely intact.

The fighter had taken off from USS Nimitz, an aircraft carrier on duty in the Gulf and suffered an engine malfunction and diverted to Bahrain.

The pilot ejected - and was unharmed - as the aircraft continued the runway excursion.

En revanche, le FCSM occupe la troisième position avec sept unités, à deux longueurs du duo Le Havre-Reims. Les Doubistes menaient déjà 3-0 à la 63 minute de jeu grâce à un but de Teikeu et un doublé de Martin .

Bahrain's Ministry of Transport and Communications confirmed the incident, saying no injuries occurred. Initially it has attempted to land at Sheikh Isa base but went on to the global airport where it touched down on the runway but could not stop.

Cmdr Urban said naval officials had begun an investigation into the crash and were trying to help the airport resume operations.

Bahrain is also home to an under-construction British naval base.
