Author: By Mark Bulstrode, PA

The Ministry of Defence said the GR4 Tornado was damaged at Kandahar Airfield,
in the south of the country, at 7.20am local time (0250 GMT).

A spokeswoman said the injuries suffered by the crew – the only people on
board – were still being assessed.

“The RAF GR4 Tornado crashed during take-off,” she said.

“An investigation has been launched but the crash definitely wasn’t due to
enemy action.

“The crew ejected safely but they did sustain some injuries, which are
currently being assessed in a hospital.”

She added that accident investigators were analysing damage to the aircraft.
