Pilot feared dead in jump-jet crash

AN RAF pilot was feared dead yesterday when a Harrier jump jet crashed into a field. The aircraft, based at RAF Wittering in Cambridgeshire, came down near Streatlam, County Durham. A police spokesman said: "The jet burst into flames. It seems he clipped a power line but that has not been confirmed. The pilot didn't appear to get out."
