MADRID (Reuters) – A Spanish military plane crashed into the sea off the country’s southeastern coast early on Monday and the pilot appeared to have ejected from the aircraft, the air force said.

The C-101 jet, used for training, hit the water near La Manga at around 0738 GMT, an air force spokesman said.

It was not yet clear if the pilot, a flying instructor who was not accompanied by any pupils at the time, had been rescued, the spokesman said.
