The report says that the pilots were picked up by a merchant ship, which took place in the square where the two aircraft collided. After the servicemen were taken aboard, they were handed over to the coast guard, who sent the pilots to a military hospital located in Norfolk.

The collision of two aircraft occurred during the execution of their regular training flight.
Pentagon officials have not yet commented on the reasons for the collision of two carrier-based fighter-bombers. In a statement, Peter Cook, a spokesman for the main US military department, said that "an inspection has been launched on the fact of a flight incident."
Medical workers at the hospital in Norfolk say that the lives of pilots are out of danger.
