According to Reuters, a Swiss air force Tiger F-5 jet crashed near the Swiss ski resort of Melchsee-Frutt yesterday.

The pilot reportedly ejected prior to the crash and is okay. No injuries have been reported at this time.

The Tiger F-5 jets were purchased from Northrop Grumman by the Swiss military back in 1978.

The planes are only used for training missions, and the incident occurred while the pilot was participating as a “sparring partner” with two other Swiss aircraft.

Pictures of the incident were shared by Reddit user u/cvnh.
