An investigation has been launched after a low-flying RAF plane suffered a collision in Cyprus, the Ministry of Defence has said.
The RAF Jaguar damaged its wing
The single-seater Jaguar aircraft suffered damage to its wing tip during a flight from RAF Akrotiri, an MoD spokeswoman said.
She said the pilot, who was unhurt, had permission to undertake the flight.
The Sun claimed the plane hit a lamppost while travelling at 600mph and sparked an emergency response.
It said the pilot, from RAF Coltishall, Norfolk, was on a celebration run after completing a
week's training when the collision occurred.
But the MoD spokeswoman could not confirm this version of events.
She said: "He realised that the light on his wing tip wasn't working shortly after
take-off and returned."
The pilot is from 41 squadron.
