A US F-15 crash landed inside Libya premises. The two crew members inside the jet plane are safe as they ejected themselves at high altitudes. Minor bruises are reported to have occurred to both the members and their lives are not in danger.
Vince Crawley of U.S African Command, Russian news agency and London telegraph all affirmed to the report that the F-15 jet faced a mechanical failure, which led to the accident.
On the other hand Tripoli is claiming to have shot the fighter jet. Although there is no proof presented by the Gaddafi’s party or government but the Tripoli argues that in future more aircrafts will be brought down.
United States government has also announced the crash to be a mechanical failure and dispels the claim that it has been brought down by enemy forces.
