Eject pilot in hospital.
AN RAF student pilot ejected to safety yesterday just before his Hawk jet crashed on farmland.
It came down near the village of Bodffordd in Anglesey.
The pilot, who was flying solo, was just moments from the Mona airstrip.
He was flown by helicopter to hospital at Bangor for a check-up and treatment to slight injuries to his face.
Last night the jet's remains lay against a tree in a field. It had clipped a hedge before crashing.
Air crash investigators are looking into the accident.
