DOHA (Reuters) - Two Qatari military training planes collided in mid-air, but the pilots managed to eject safely, the defense ministry said on Wednesday.

“During a training flight a collision occurred between two training planes and the pilots were able to safely get out by using the ejection seat,” a statement on the ministry’s Twitter account said. It did not say when the collision happened.
