Two French Rafale fighter jets crash at sea

PARIS, Sept 24 (Reuters) - Two French Rafale fighter jets crashed in the Mediterrenean on Thursday during a test flight from the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier, the navy said in a statement.

One pilot has been rescued at sea, another is still missing.

Rafale, made by Dassault Aviation SA AVMD.PA, is France's most-advanced fighter plane which was about to obtain its first export order ever as Brazil is mulling ordering the jets. (Reporting by Marcel Michelson)
