During a training mission a French Rafale fighter plane crashed, and the pilot was missing.

Two fighter jets took off from a military air field in Saint-Dizier in the Correze region for a training mission at about 4,000 meters (13,000 feet), said air force spokesman Col. Gilles Lemoine.

One of the planes disappeared from radar screens for unknown reasons and crashed, he said. The pilot was missing, and a search was under way.
