Officials say a British Tornado fighter jet has crashed off the west coast of Scotland and its two crew members have been rescued.

Britain's Maritime and Coastguard Agency says that rescue occurred on Thursday in the waters off northwest Scotland. The pair were airlifted to a hospital in the Scottish coastal city of Inverness and their condition was not immediately known. Britain's Royal Air Force has about 140 combat-ready, two-seat Tornado jets.
