An Bulgarian Air Force's MiG 29 fighter jet crashed during the Thracian Star 2012 exercise of the Bulgarian and US Air Forces, plummeted into a river earlier on Thursday between the southern villages of Tsarimir and Golyam Chardak near Plovdiv.
The two pilots, Maj. Doychinov and Capt. Metodiev, catapulted out of the aircraft, and no victims or injured have been reported so far. They have been taken to the Military Hospital in Plovdiv, and their life is out of danger.
They have back injuries that are typical after bailing out, Bulgaria's Defense Ministry said in a statement Thursday afternoon.
