Harrier crash lands in Kandahar after engine failure - video

Looks like the pilot came in too hard and too fast. He stays with the plane until the cockpit caches fire then ejects to safety. Apparently the pilot had engine failure on approach to Kandahar. I am surprised that the weapons didn't explode.

A British jet pilot has been injured after ejecting from his aircraft before it crashed in Afghanistan.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the Harrier pilot was forced to eject while landing at Kandahar airfield.

The RAF pilot is believed to have suffered minor injuries. The MoD said there was no suggestion the incident was caused by enemy action.

The aircraft was badly damaged in the crash at about 1030 local time but no-one else was injured, the MoD spokesman said.

He said: "Emergency services have been called to the scene and are assessing the damage."
