An Iranian military jet crashed on Saturday in the central Isfahan province, but the two pilots ejected safely before it came down in a desert area.

The semi-official Fars news agency reported that the F 7 fighter jet crashed in Hassan Abad desert in the province of Isfahan.

“The fighter jet ran into technical problems after departing the Shahid Babaei Air Base in Isfahan on a training flight and crashed mid-way near Hasanabad village” the air force said in a statement published by Fars.

Emergency teams arrived at the crash site, Fars said, and the pilot and co-pilot of the F 7 jet were taken to a hospital.
