A two-seat Belgian F-16 has crashed near Lorient in France, and one of the flight crew is stuck on a power line after ejecting.

Hope he's ok!  He must have been unconscious, or just couldn't avoid landing on the powerline?

I'm just a couple of miles to the east right now. Was a lot of FJ activity last night, at one point something was orbiting the gite but nothing seen.
