By:   Craig Hoyle London

The French air force said an investigation has been launched to determine the cause of the mishap, and confirmed that both crew members of the Mirage escaped after suffering only bruises as a result of the ejection.

France had deployed three two-seat Mirage 2000Ds and three Dassault Rafales to participate in the bilateral “Greenshield” exercise with Saudi forces.
