WASHINGTON - Two US Navy jets collided while airborne on Thursday off the North Carolina coast, and all four crew members were recovered safely, US officials said.

The crews from the two F/A-18 jets were transported to a medical facility, a Navy official said.

Members of a nearby commercial fishing boat rescued the military crews, the US Coast Guard said in a statement.

The crew members appeared to be in good condition, MSNBC reported, adding that one person had a leg injury.
