The U.S. National Guard said that an F-16 crashed early Tuesday afternoon during a routine training flight in southern Wisconsin, the United States, while the pilot ejected safely, according to a report of Wisconsin State Journal.

The F-16 from the Madison-based 115th Fighter Wing went down while doing a training flight from Volk Field. The pilot onboard was picked up south of the town of Chester in Adams County and is being medically evaluated.

U.S. Air Force was requested by the National Guard to probe the cause of the accident.
